Play video Weather across the Northeast is detailed in the above AccuWeather.com video.

Umbrellas will not be needed in New York City until Wednesday.

High pressure will keep New York City dry through Tuesday, a dramatic change from what was happening as Sandy barreled onshore one year ago.

The arrival of fresh cool air will hold Tuesday's high to the lower 50s despite sunshine for much of the day.

Residents will have to brush the dust off their umbrellas Wednesday morning as a quick-moving storm system returns a bit of rain to the city, but most of the rain will end by the afternoon.

A shower or two from another storm will graze the city on Thursday with more numerous showers likely follow for Friday.

AccuWeather.com meteorologists are monitoring the potential for gusty winds to accompany Friday's showers.

Friday's soaker should hold off until after trick-or-treating hours, but a stray shower could still be around Thursday evening.

Ahead of the late-week storm, mild air will be drawn into the Northeast and boost temperatures in New York City to near 70 for both Thursday and Friday.
