NEW YORK (PIX11) — Summer has just started this past Tuesday and while the warmth has been absent since then, things are about heat up. A frontal boundary to our west has been bringing a few showers for parts of the region on Thursday. Once that front passes, that will allow the door to open for the heat to finally make its way to our region.

As for Thursday night, there could still be an isolated shower or storm around in the region. The vast majority will stay dry with some clouds around through the night. Overnight temperatures will end up in the lower 60s.

Friday will be a transition day as the front moves offshore and high pressure starts to move in. The skies will clear out and temperatures will climb up to around 80 degrees.

Eventually the high will track to the south and east setting up a plate for a hot weekend.

We expect temperatures to soar into the lower 90s on Saturday as winds shift southwesterly around the area of high pressure. While Sunday will remain to be a hot day, there could be a bit of a sea breeze coming in during the afternoon keeping temperatures along coastal sections in the upper 80s. Still, inland areas will likely see highs approaching the 90s as well.

A cold front approaching the region cloud bring a thunderstorm late on Sunday, but most of the action should hold off until Monday afternoon. Much of the day itself will feature partly sunny skies. Temperatures will top out at around 80, before the showers and storms develop in the afternoon.

Temperatures will back down further into the upper 70s on Tuesday, but temperatures will trend upward for the rest of the week. We may even see another round of 90-degree temperatures heading into next weekend.
