NEW YORK — After record-breaking temperatures in Central Park on Friday, the forecast returned to more seasonable conditions on Saturday.

Thermometers in Central Park reached 82 degrees Friday, beating the record high of 76 degrees set in 1922, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).

However, the summer-like heat was fleeting, as temperatures dropped into the 50s overnight and were expected to top out around 67 degrees Saturday afternoon. Still, Saturday appears to be the better of the weekend days with plenty of sunshine and a slight breeze.

The sun will return on Monday and stick around until Wednesday, when another chance of rain enters the forecast.
