NEW YORK — The work week starts with great weather to get outside and enjoy, with high temperatures reaching the mid 60s on Monday under a mix of clouds and sun.

A quick-passing shower is possible, especially north and west of the city in the afternoon, but most of us stay dry.

Tuesday is even better, with highs around 70 under a mostly sunny sky.

On Wednesday, a potent storm system moves toward the tri-state region, bringing afternoon showers and the chance for thunderstorms. The wind will pick up as well, and much cooler air will rush in behind Wednesday’s cold front.

Thursday’s high temperatures will be in the 50s, but the wind will make it feel unseasonably chilly.
