NEW YORK — Slightly cooler temperatures and a chance of afternoon showers will cap off the weekend Sunday.
Expect a mix of sun and clouds Sunday afternoon with highs touching the 80s. Storms could pass over north and west of New York City.
A mid- to upper-level disturbance brings in showers and isolated thunderstorms in parts of the tri-state area this evening. Early outdoor plans weren’t ruined, but you may need a contingency plan Sunday evening.
The threat for showers will continue until about 8pm followed by decreasing clouds and overnight lows in the upper 50s.
However, the potential for showers won’t last. Most of the workweek looks dry, but there is a chance for rain and storms later in the week.
Dry weather will return on Monday with highs in the 70s.
If you think the past few days have been warm, just wait until next week. Get ready to peel away the extra layers and crank up the AC. Highs are slated to rise into the 80s.
High temperatures will steadily rise each day this week, hitting the mid-80s by Wednesday and continuing into at least Thursday.
The warmup will continue into next weekend.
