NEW YORK — The chill has arrived. After a cold front swept through the region, high pressure moved in from Canada bringing in a cooler air mass over the area. On Wednesday afternoon, temperatures topped out in the upper 60s.
The next few days will feature temperatures on the cool side during the day and on the chilly side at night. A few outlying suburbs could end up with some frost.
Skies will be generally clear through Wednesday night. Temperatures will drop into the mid 50s in the city while many surrounding areas will go down into the 40s. A few outlying spots may end up in the upper 30s.
The core of the cool air arrives on Thursday. Aside from a few patchy clouds, expect sunny skies during the day. Temperatures will climb into the mid 60s. At night, temperatures will trail down to around 50 degrees in the city. The rest of the region will be in the upper 30s and 40s. Patchy frost will be a possibility for those areas that drop below 40 degrees.
Temperatures will start to trend upward starting on Friday and it will continue into Saturday with highs in the upper 60s to mid 70s. It will remain to be sunny during this period.
Sunday starts out with some sun with highs in the mid 70s. Heading into the latter part of the day, a wave of low pressure may bring back the chance of showers.
