The warm weather pattern in New York City will peak on Monday but will feature several days of ideal outdoor conditions.

People are reminded that conditions are prime for brush fires in the area at this time. Dry grass and other brush from the winter can ignite quickly in the dry air, sunshine and warmth. Do not throw burning cigarettes on the ground and be careful with outdoor power equipment. Avoid parking vehicles on high brush as the hot exhaust system can ignite a blaze.

A brush fire spread rapidly in the Raritan Center industrial park Thursday midday.

High temperatures each day through Sunday will be well into the 60s, even despite the chance of a shower on Friday.

A weak wave of low pressure will bring the threat for a bit of rain Friday night and early Saturday morning, but the balance of the weekend will be dry and will remain warm. This includes the Barbeque Cookoff on Staten Island on Saturday and Cherry Blossom Day at Branch Brook Park in Newark, N.J.

A south to southwesterly flow of air will push temperatures into the 70s over much of the region on Monday, which would be the warmest day since last October. It is possible temperatures flirt with 80 F over central New Jersey and part of upstate New York. The cool spots will be along the Connecticut coast and the south shore of Long Island.

Much cooler weather will move in Tuesday and Wednesday.
