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

While clouds win out over sunshine across the New York City area this weekend, rain will avoid much of the area.

A wedge of dry air along the I-95 corridor will fight to keep rain away.

Nothing more than a brief shower will pass through with a bit of steadier rain crossing eastern Long Island.

Temperatures will continue to be held a bit below normal as humidity remains low.

Despite the cloud cover, the weather will be ideal for most outdoor activities ranging from jogging, swimming and Yankees baseball to construction, yard work and painting projects.

Tranquil winds and waves is forecast for the Brooklyn Bridge Swim on Sunday.

Temperatures at night into the weekend will dip into the 50s in the northern and western suburbs but will stop in the 60s in urban areas and at the beach.

The comfortable weather around Boston will hold through Monday before a significant increase in warmth and humidity occurs on Tuesday.

AccuWeather.com meteorologists are concerned for that steamy air to trigger strong thunderstorms later Thursday as a cold front arrives.
