NEW YORK (PIX11) — The week started on the humid side as temperatures climbed into the lower 80s. That is all changing Monday night as a cold front brings in a more comfortable air mass. There is also a disturbance that is bringing heavy downpours and strong storms in the Midwest that will track toward the Mid-Atlantic states through the night and into Tuesday morning. For now, it looks to track will south, but the northern fringe may end up clipping parts of New Jersey.
As previously mentioned, Monday night will gradually turn more comfortable as a cold front crosses through the region during the early evening hours. The rest of the night will feature patchy clouds with lows in the upper 60s.
There may be a few clouds associated with some storms that will pass to the south on Tuesday morning. While parts of Southern and Central New Jersey may get a downpour, the city and points north should stay dry. The rest of the day will feature sunshine and it will be a pleasant afternoon with highs around 80 degrees.
Wednesday will feature a good deal of sunshine as well with temperatures will be around 80.
Things start to get unsettled around here on Thursday. The day may start out fine with highs in the upper 70s, but a cold front could bring scattered showers and storms in the afternoon or evening. The threat may linger through the night before possibly tapering off on Friday morning.
The rest of Friday looks to be a very warm day as temperatures soar into the upper 80s, possibly hitting 90 for some areas.
Father’s Day Weekend looks to be on the cool side as the jet takes a dip to the south. It will be dry with partly to mostly sunny skies, but temperatures will likely hold in the mid-70s during the period.
