NEW YORK — The heat and humidity were on this past weekend as temperatures hovered around 90 degrees around the city. Heading into the middle part of the week, the temperature will back off a touch, but the humidity will remain to be oppressive, making it feel as if it was still around 90 degrees. Relief will finally come during the latter part of the week.
A few spotty showers developed Monday afternoon. While one or two got close to the coast, most of it stayed inland. The rest of the night will feature partly cloudy skies. It will be warm and humid as temperatures drop into the lower 70s in the city.

On Tuesday, temperatures will quickly climb into the mid to upper 80s. This time, more widespread storms will develop in the afternoon keeping temperatures from heading back into the 90s. As of now, the storms do not look to be severe, but they may be slow-movers and that could create localized flash flooding.
Wednesday may end up being a repeat of Tuesday. A cold front will approach from the north allowing for a few more thunderstorms to flare up in the afternoon. Highs may once again climb into the 80s.
When the front drops south, cooler air will follow behind and stick around through next weekend.
While Thursday looks to be very nice, Friday may be unsettled. The front will stall just to the south and a wave of low pressure will ride along the boundary. As a result, expect showers to develop and easterly wind will keep temperatures in the lower 70s. The weekend looks dry, but it may feature a good amount of clouds with temperatures in the 70s.
