Yet another push of cooler and less humid air will settle into the New York City area prior to the weekend.

While Bertha will still generate some rough surf and the risk of locally strong rip currents into Thursday along the Atlantic coast, the system was losing tropical characteristics.

Spanning Thursday through Sunday, each day will bring at least partial sunshine, cooler-than-average air and lower-than-average humidity levels for early August. Typical highs this time of the year are around 84 F.

A system is forecast to spread some rain and thunder across the Ohio Valley and southern part of the mid-Atlantic this weekend. That rain would only move into and overwhelm the dry air around the New York City area if this system travels farther to the north than expected.
