After a few days of 80-degree F temperatures, cool air will hang around New York City through the end of the week.

Dry air has pushed in from the northeast and has shoved much of the low cloud bank to the south and west of the metro area on Thursday. Temperatures will peak in the upper 60s to near 70.

As a result, it may not be the most pleasant for hanging out on the beach and people who mind cool weather will be reaching for jackets and wearing long sleeves for comfort.

Patchy clouds will drift over the region Thursday night through Friday night, but there should be some opportunity to catch Manhattanhenge on one or both nights during the period.

A disturbance dropping in from the northwest may spark an afternoon shower on Friday. MinuteCast™ has the minute-by-minute forecast for your exact location when showers and thunderstorms threaten.
