NYC: Cool Air to Win Out Over Warmth This Week

Despite a warm start, cooler air will make a comeback in New York City this week.

A front with cool, Atlantic Ocean air in its wake will cross the area from northeast to southwest Monday night into Tuesday.

Once that front swings through, shorts and sunglasses will likely be replaced with jackets and umbrellas.

Tuesday is shaping up to be a damp day around New York City with temperatures held to the 60s where clouds and drizzle occur, while warmth and a risk of thunderstorms set up farther west.

A bit of rain and drizzle will continue at times on Wednesday as temperatures struggle to reach even the 60-degree mark.

A rebound in temperatures will occur Thursday ahead of the cold front heightening concerns for late-week heavy rain. However, temperatures will not soar significantly with a high of only near 70 F expected.

The front, combined with embedded tropical moisture, will bring the risk of flooding downpours during Friday afternoon and evening.

Fresh cool air following the front and a slow-moving storm system set to take shape over the Northeast or just offshore will prevent a repeat of the summerlike warmth next weekend or early the following week.
