    After locally drenching showers and thunderstorms and the usual clouds affect New York City into Saturday night, some sunshine will appear for mom on Sunday.

    A slow-moving storm affecting the Central states much of this week will pick up some forward speed this weekend.

    As moisture with the storm system drifts through into Saturday night, there is the potential for highly localized urban flooding with the corresponding travel delays and disruptions to outdoor activities.

    A small area of high pressure should be just strong enough to allow dry air to mix down from aloft and break up clouds and prevent shower activity in the Northeast on Sunday.

    The warmest day of the bunch is likely to be Monday, just ahead of a back door cool front approaching form the north. Temperatures may climb well into the 80s.

    The temperature reached 80 for the first time this season on Saturday. The last time the temperature hit 80 or higher in Central Park was on Oct. 4, when the high was 86.
