Early Friday rain clears out for a cooler day and gorgeous weekend


The cold front that brought heavy rain across the region early Friday morning has shifted east allowing a good deal of sunshine by the afternoon. The front will linger to the east keeping some clouds around on Saturday, but it will be a quiet weekend overall for the city and points west. 

Skies will be generally clear Friday night and it will be on the chilly side for areas well north and west of the city. Temperatures will drop to around 60 degrees in the city, but the outlying suburbs well inland will end up in the 40s.

The vast majority will see sunny skies on Saturday and temperatures will climb into the mid 70s. The exception will be over at the East End of Long Island where the front will linger and keep a fair amount of clouds around. A wave of low pressure will develop offshore and creep north along the front bringing the risk of an additional shower or two late in the day and in the evening. 

High pressure will finally move in giving us a sunny Sunday for all, but there will be a bit of a breeze coming in from the northwest. That will cap the temperatures to around the lower 70s in the afternoon.

It remains dry heading into Monday with partly sunny skies and highs in the mid 70s.

By Tuesday, a cold front will approach bringing back the risk of some scattered showers. Highs will be in the upper 70s.
