No Early Taste of Summer in Store for NYC This Week

Residents of New York City will not have to worry about finding ways to stay cool this week.

The weather pattern across the United States this week will work to suppress heat and humidity south of New York City.

Any shower will be light and spotty and pose only minor interruptions to outdoor activities into Monday night.

The shower chance will end by Tuesday, which is good news for those headed to watch the New York Mets when they return to Citi Field Tuesday evening to take on the Los Angeles Dodgers.

High temperatures are forecast to be in the middle 70s on Tuesday.

More numerous showers and thunderstorms are likely on Wednesday and possibly through Thursday as a storm system reaches the Northeast.

Temperatures will also take a tumble later in the week as the storm opens the door for fresh cooler air to arrive.

Looking ahead, the Memorial Day holiday weekend is likely to start with temperatures near to below normal with gradual warming through Memorial Day. However, it will likely not be extremely hot and humid for the unofficial start to summer.
