NEW YORK — The gloomy weather may have forced some you to cancel outdoor plans on Sunday, but conditions will improve for you to enjoy the rest of the holiday weekend.
If you’re headed to the parade Monday, expect a temperature reading of 68 degrees as it gets underway in Manhattan. Clouds will also continue to dominate because we’ve been stuck between two systems, high pressure to the north and an area of low pressure to our south off the Carolina coast.

While it has plagued the northeast with plenty of clouds and occasional showers, the center of circulation places the bulk of the storm south of our area. Although severe weather isn’t expected, a coastal flood advisory has been issued again by the National Weather Service with one foot inundation possible from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday.
Also, winds are a concern. With normal highs topping out in the mid to upper 60s across the city, easterly winds average between 20 and 30 mph making it feel a bit cooler.
There’s still the potential for a few more showers overnight into Monday morning. Then clouds will be replaced with peaks of sunshine by the afternoon. Winds will continue to diminish, and it will feel warmer with highs topping out in the low 70s. A gradual warmup is in store with highs topping out near 80 later in the week along with a return of sunshine.
