NEW YORK (PIX11) — The mild temperatures should stick around for one more day, but a cold front will bring showers during the latter part of Saturday. Cold air will follow behind the rain and drive temperatures down for Easter Sunday.
Considering how warm it was on Thursday will make Easter Sunday feel ridiculously cold as temperatures will struggle to climb into the lower 50s. In addition to the chilly temperatures, there will be a brisk breeze making it feel much colder in the morning.
Friday night looks to be a mainly clear night. Overnight temperatures will end up in the lower 50s in the city. Outlying suburbs will end up dropping into the 40s.
Saturday may feature a bit of sun in the morning and that should help bring temperatures up into the mid 60s to around 70. Clouds will be on the increase though with showers developing in the afternoon. At night, there could be a thunderstorm bringing in a brief downpour for some.
Temperatures will then take a considerable tumble behind the cold front. On Easter Morning, temperatures may drop into the lower 40s, but there will be a wind making it feel more like the 30s. The sun will break through the clouds during the day, but it will remain to be on chilly side with highs in the lower 50s. Well north, an upper-level system will lag bringing the threat of a snow or rain shower well north of the city.
It will be relatively quiet for much of Monday with partly sunny skies and temperatures nudging upward to the mid 50s. At night, the next system could bring rain that could linger into Tuesday morning. Despite the rain, temperatures will continue their climb for Tuesday. Highs will likely return to around 60 degrees.
