A weak front will move through the area today, followed by high pressure for the rest of the week. We can expect mostly cloudy skies this afternoon with scattered showers possible through the evening. The high temperature will be 75 degrees in the city, mid 70s in the suburbs. The normal high temperature in Central Park for today is 75 degrees.
Tuesday will be dry and beautiful again. In fact, highs will top off at 70-75 with low humidity. Wednesday may even be a few degrees cooler, just barely making it to 70. So there will be a fall feel in the air for the middle of this last week of summer.
Thursday will see a return of warmer temperatures and by the time we get to next weekend, readings may well be back up into the 80s. These warm temperatures will precede the beginning of the fall season. The autumnal equinox is 3:50 a.m. on Monday the 23rd.
