    NYC: Rain to Dampen Weekend Plans

    By By Alex Sosnowski, senior meteorologist.

    Rain will converge along the Atlantic Seaboard this weekend with New York City caught in the middle at times.

    As more humid air begins to push back in from the Atlantic Ocean, a series of disturbances moving up from the South will unleash downpours. Some of the rain will be heavy enough to cause flash and urban flooding.

    One or more rounds of rain and thunderstorms are in the offing this weekend that cannot only slow travel at times, but also ruin a day at the beach or the ballpark.


    People heading to the city for a shopping trip or Broadway shows should take along an umbrella. There is a chance of delays during each of the games this weekend between the Mets and Giants.

    How high temperatures get this weekend will depend on cloud cover and the timing and duration of the rainfall, which could last several hours.

    Of the two days this weekend, Sunday is likely to bring less rain and has the best chance at bringing a few intervals of sunshine.

    High temperatures are forecast to range from the 70s to the lower 80s, which is well below the average high in the middle 80s for early August.

    More typical warmth, humidity and less rain are forecast for next week.
