An area of high pressure has moved into the Northeast, finally bringing down the humidity and bringing a refreshing air mass into the city. While there is still a little bit of haze associated with the wildfires from the Western States and Canada, it is much better than the previous few days. The hazy conditions should dissipate further on Friday, but it may start to come back by Sunday.
It will remain very comfortable Thursday night under partly cloudy skies. Temperatures will drop down into the mid 60s, with some areas dropping into the 50s.
Friday will feature more sunshine with highs in the lower 80s. We will have to watch a weak disturbance passing to the north that could bring the risk of an isolated shower or storm in the afternoon. Areas to the north will have the best chance of getting any precipitation.
Saturday will be the pick of the weekend as the high shifts right over the city. It will be a sunny day with temperatures holding in the lower 80s.
The gorgeous stretch comes to an end as a storm system approaches the region on Sunday. A warm front could bring the chance of showers in the morning. It will also bring back the humidity as temperatures climb into the mid to upper 80s. In the afternoon, a few scattered showers and storms may develop and continue into the evening.
By Monday, temperatures will climb to around 90 and the risk of a storm cannot be ruled out in the afternoon. We may see more of the same through at least Wednesday when a cold front finally starts to press through the region.
