    NYC: New Week Brings Surge of Heat, Humidity

    By By Kristina Pydynowski, senior meteorologist

    The absence of high heat and humidity around New York City will not last into the start of the new week.

    As the area of high pressure that kept humidity low through the holiday weekend departs, the door will open for yet another surge of steamy air into New York City for the new week.

    Temperatures will return to around the 90-degree mark both Monday and Tuesday. With higher humidity in place, AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures will soar well into the 90s.

    Such heat and humidity will prove challenging and hazardous for those with respiratory issues and those engaging in manual labor.

    Winds flowing in off the cooler ocean will keep the temperatures lower along the south shore of Long Island both days.

    Otherwise, spotty cooling thunderstorms on Monday will be confined to the suburbs outside of I-287 in the late afternoon and evening hours.

    The thunderstorm chance will expand to more of the Tri-State area Tuesday afternoon and night, potentially causing some interruptions at Citi Field Tuesday evening when the Mets are scheduled to face the Atlanta Braves.

    Another very warm and humid day will unfold on Wednesday as a slow-moving front interacting with the steamy air triggers another shower or thunderstorm.

    How fast that front is to clear the Northeast coast will determine how quick drier air returns later in the week.
