NEW YORK (PIX11) — It was another unseasonably cool day across the five boroughs as afternoon temperatures crawled their way up through the 40s and into the low 50s. Central Park clocked-in with a high of just 50 degrees, nearly 10 degrees below normal. It was the second coldest afternoon high of the month (after 48 on April 3). In addition, a few light, spotty showers moved through the region, but no more than a trace of rain fell, and in fact, most locations just stayed dry.

The winds were an issue though, with gusts exceeding 35 mph in parts of the area.

Fortunately, some warmer air is set to make its way into the region in the coming days. A Bermuda high will set itself up in the tropics and steer southwest winds in our direction. With that in place, afternoon highs in the 60s and 70s will be possible beginning Tuesday. Unfortunately, some additional wet weather is possible as well. We are not expecting any all-day rain-outs, but a few showers are possible late Monday evening into Tuesday morning, and again Wednesday afternoon into Thursday morning.

The good news is that skies are expected to clear-out for the Mets home opener on Friday, and the warm conditions are likely to stay in place.
