NEW YORK — After a chilly start to Friday, the afternoon ended on a pleasant note as temperatures returned into the lower 60s.

Saturday will be a gorgeous day featuring a good deal of sunshine for the first half of the day, the clouds will be on the increase. A southwesterly wind should help bring temperatures up into the low to mid 70s in the city and points inland.

A storm system will approach from the Southeastern US and pass just off the coast of the Tri-State Region bringing rain starting late Saturday night and continue into the midday hours on Sunday.
