NEW YORK (PIX11) — While portions of the country have been dealing with extreme heat in the Southern Plains, our region has escaped it for the most part as high pressure to the north has kept us with more seasonable temperatures. Changes are on the way as an area that area of high pressure shifts offshore for tomorrow. That will bring in a cooler easterly breeze with a good amount of cloud cover.
Wednesday night will feature partly to mostly cloudy skies during the period. Overnight lows will end up trailing down into the lower 70s for the city.
As the winds will shift more easterly on Thursday, skies will feature more clouds. However, there could be a few breaks of sun. While most of the day looks to be dry, there could be a few very light showers widely scattered about in the afternoon. Most areas will end up staying in the 70s, while the city may make its way up toward 80 degrees.
Friday should feature more sunshine as the easterly wind eases, however, the meandering frontal boundary to the south will continue to bring some clouds around. The breaks in the clouds will be enough to bring temperatures back up into the mid 80s. Late in the day a weakening cold front approaching from the northwest could bring a late-night scattered shower or thunderstorm.
The front should move offshore leaving us with a gorgeous weekend. High pressure will bring mostly sunny skies on Saturday and Sunday with highs holding in the lower 80s.
Temperatures during the early part of next week look to climb toward 90 degrees before a cold front brings the chance of scattered storms by next Tuesday and Wednesday.
