NEW YORK — After record breaking temperatures and rainfall this weekend, expect a return of sunshine and warmer temperatures.
Lows bottomed out at 48 degrees at LaGuardia, which tied the 1940 and 1949 records. Plus, it was another one for the books Sunday afternoon as temperatures only reached the low 50s across the tri-state area.
In addition to cooler than normal temperatures, the rain put a damper on outdoor holiday plans. Showers are slated to taper off from southwest to northeast between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. on Sunday. A few scattered light showers and mist are possible until about midnight, followed by gradual clearing. Overnight temperatures will likely bottom out in the upper 40s before topping out near 70 in the afternoon.
The warmup will continue through the week with highs near normal or slightly above average. There could also be a late day shower on Wednesday, mainly north and west of the city. Another round is slated to arrive on Thursday. Finally, summer-like weather returns next weekend.
As always, stay tuned for updates
