Heat, humidity and heavy rain will remain held at bay around New York City through Monday.

Gone is the heavy rain that poured down later Friday, replaced by mostly rain-free conditions into Monday.

The weather will generally bring good drying conditions. However, there can be very widely separated pop-up showers during the afternoon and evening hours of Sunday and Monday.

The showers will be brief, spotty and only pose minor interferences to outdoor plans.

One such shower could cross Yankee Stadium Sunday afternoon, briefly dampening the game between the Yankees and the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Temperatures through Monday will average a couple of degrees below normal with highs near 70 F, and overnight lows forecast to range from the middle 40s in many suburbs to lower 50s in Midtown.

A dry Tuesday will follow as clouds stream overhead. Despite the clouds, temperatures will still be able to rise to near 75 F.

The next chance of locally drenching showers and thunderstorms will come at midweek before another stretch of cool weather follows for late week.
