While temperatures will rebound to end the weekend in New York City, further warmth is expected for the first half of the new week.
A southward push of dry air will sweep clouds and the rain chances away from New York City by Sunday.
Instead, a good deal of sun will shine to end the weekend. Humidity will lower and temperatures will rise to the 80-degree mark.
The weather will be perfect for outdoor weekend plans and sporting events, such as the baseball game between the Yankees and Chicago White Sox Sunday afternoon at Yankees Stadium.
Baseball fans, and anyone else planning to spend time outdoors, will definitely want to wear sunscreen and take other sun-protection measures.
Sunshine will remain in control of the city and its suburbs through Wednesday as a ridge of high pressure builds overhead. Temperatures will progressively trend upward through the 80s, returning to the upper 80s by midweek.
The new week will initially also feature continued low humidity before steamy air also surges back in at midweek, creating even higher AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures.

Lovers of autumnlike weather will be happy with the news that yet another shot of cooler air will erase the upcoming warmth later in the week.

Even so, for the main population centers such as London, Birmingham and even Glasgow, it will be far from a washout.
