Warm and humid conditions will prevail in the New York City area through Labor Day. However, storms will come calling on a few occasions.

High temperatures will be in the 80s each day with nighttime lows in the upper 60s to the lower 70s.

While the extended holiday weekend started on a dry note, the weather is destined to turn more unsettled for Sunday and Labor Day in New York City.

Sunday and Monday will still have their rain-free intervals, but the heaviest thunderstorms these days will drop blinding and potentially flooding downpours.

The accompanying lightning will delay or force outdoor activities inside for a time.

Folks heading home from their Labor Day or late-summer ventures could encounter delays at the airports and on the expressways and interstate highways Monday/Monday night.

It will not be until a cool front swings through Tuesday afternoon or night, when humidity levels will be shaved and the risk of showers and thunderstorms diminishes.
