Cooler weather greeted the 2014 Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York City the past few days, but warmer conditions are in store Wednesday as celebrities and fashion icons continue to flock to the various shows taking place citywide.

The next chance of disruptive rain is late Thursday afternoon as thunderstorms may come calling.

Fashion Week, affectionately nicknamed the "Super Bowl of Fashion," kicked off on Thursday, Sept. 4, and will run through Sept. 11, as fashion icons such as Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Betsey Johnson, Tory Burch and others converge on New York City to display trends that will be in stores for spring of 2015.

The warming trend will continue on Thursday, along with building humidity. Both may help fuel late afternoon thunderstorms. Stay ahead of the storm situation, if you are headed to the Calvin Klein show at 2 p.m. EDT on Thursday.
