NEW YORK — The clouds have largely had control of the skies for most of the week, but for the second straight day, we were able to squeeze out some sunshine. A Canadian high-pressure system slid further south into our area, and in doing so, helped break apart this morning’s cloud deck over the area. In addition, temperatures remained on the mild side, with afternoon highs reaching the low and mid 70s. The official high in Central Park was 73 degrees, making it the sixth day this month with an above-normal high temperature.
Conditions are expected to remain on the dry side for Friday, but as we make our way into Saturday, a storm system will begin to push north into our area and give us a few raindrops. In addition to the wet weather, blustery conditions could develop if that high pressure system remains nearby. The shower threat is likely to remain in place through Sunday morning, but the afternoon is looking drier.
Look for next week to begin on bright and warm note with temperatures in the low to mid 70s.
