The sunshine and low humidity from the weekend will soon be replaced by the return of thunderstorms and steamy air in New York City.
High pressure that provided perfect weather for outdoor activities this weekend will give way to rounds of thunderstorms dropping down from the Great Lakes and eastern Canada for this workweek.
AccuWeather.com meteorologists will be monitoring each round of thunderstorms closely for the possibility of a cluster of severe thunderstorms erupting over the Great Lakes, then dropping southeastward into the Northeast or mid-Atlantic.
There is concern for a couple of incidents of downpours and gusty winds in New York City as thunderstorms return Monday afternoon and night.
However, lightning accompanying all of the thunderstorms will pose the greatest danger to residents and visitors. As soon as thunder is heard, remember you are then close enough to get struck by lightning.
Among the outdoor activities that could be interfered by Monday's thunderstorms are the opening ceremony and round 1 of the U.S. Open tennis tournament being held in Flushing.
A stray shower or thunderstorm should still be around on Tuesday when an increase in humidity will be noticeable to those in New York City.
The higher humidity will combine with highs in the mid-80s to create AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures in the mid-90s Tuesday afternoon.
The sticky air will still be around on Wednesday when yet another round of showers and thunderstorms will occur.
Another dry spell may unfold later in the week and for the weekend, but could get interrupted for a day by another storm system dropping down from eastern Canada.
