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

Just when it was starting to feel like the dog days of summer again, fresh cooler and less humid air will settle over the New York City into the weekend.

Once dry weather is fully in control, the weather these days will be perfect for outdoor sports and activities. The air will still be warm enough for swimming, but will be more bearable for those without air conditioning.

After a winter with above-average heating bills from the Midwest to the Northeast, the weather will continue to work toward keeping cooling costs down through the end of July.

Another nice day will unfold for Saturday before a spike in humidity will return the chance for a thunderstorm on Sunday.

Additional showers and thunderstorms will follow for Monday before yet another dose of Canadian air arrives next week.
