NEW YORK (PIX11) — An area of low pressure will ride along a frontal boundary to the south on Saturday. While the city and points north should be dry, it will keep the clouds around, especially for the first part of the day. Well south, there could even be the chance for some light showers that could continue through at least the early afternoon hours. High pressure eventually will win out suppressing the storm system and frontal boundary to the south allowing for the sun to break through the clouds.

A few scattered showers crossed through the region during the afternoon and early evening hours on Friday. The rest of the night will feature variably cloudy skies with temperatures dropping to around 70.

Saturday will start out with generally cloudy conditions for much of the morning in the city. To the south, a few light showers will be possible as a wave of low pressure passes through the Mid-Atlantic. Well north, there will likely be a fair amount of sun. As high pressure moves in, the clouds will shift further south away from the city and bring in the sunshine for the afternoon. The shower threat to the south should diminish as well. Temperatures will top out at around 80 degrees.

The skies should totally clear out by Sunday as the high moves closer. It will be a gorgeous day featuring generally sunny skies and highs inching up into the lower 80s.

Heading into next week, we will see a warming trend develop as the high moves offshore and bring in a southwesterly flow. Monday will feature sunny skies, but the southwesterly winds will send temperatures up into the mid 80s. By Tuesday and Wednesday, we may see the thermometer jump toward the lower 90s as the southwesterly flow persists. At the same time a cold front will make its way into the region. That could spark up a thunderstorm on Tuesday. A better chance for scattered showers and storms will likely develop by Wednesday.

Afterwards the heat should ease during the latter part of the week.
