NEW YORK (PIX11) — The weekend looks to start the same way the work week ends. A weak storm system that has meandered well offshore has backtracked to the west toward the coastline. It will make its way up the coastline bringing the chance of some light showers through Saturday. Along with the shower chance, some fog and drizzle has developed, and it has been dense for coastal sections. A Dense Fog Advisory has been posted as a result through Saturday morning. The visibility has the potential to go down to less than quarter mile making travel quite treacherous.
Much of Friday night will feature a good deal low clouds and some fog. Some drizzle cannot be ruled out as well. Overnight, temperatures will be in the lower 60s in the city and 50s elsewhere
The fog should dissipate Saturday morning, but the clouds will linger around for the most part. While a few light showers could develop in morning, most of it should occur in the afternoon. Again, most of it will be on the light side. In between the showers, there could be some breaks of sun, and that would help bring temperatures to around 70 degrees.
As far as Sunday goes, there could be a leftover shower early. Otherwise, skies will clear out and temperatures will soar into the mid to upper 70s. An approaching cold front could bring a stray thunderstorm late in the day.
Monday will be warmer with temperatures climbing up into the upper 70s. There will be a better chance of scattered showers and storms developing in the afternoon as the cold front crosses through the region.
The front will pass Monday night leaving us with a pleasant Tuesday with mostly sunny skies and highs in the lower 70s.
