    Play video Weather across the Northeast is discussed in the above AccuWeather.com video.

    Following a surge of humidity and showers to end the week, dry and cooler air will push southward across the New York City area this weekend.

    Humidity levels will drop Saturday into Sunday, while showers and spotty drenching storms shift to the south.

    As the dry air takes hold, cloud cover will retreat to the south as well.

    Sunday is shaping up to be the better half of the weekend for outdoor plans with more sunshine than clouds.

    Baseball fans headed to watch the Yankees host the White Sox at Yankees Stadium Sunday afternoon will definitely want to wear sunscreen and take other sun protection measures.

    Temperatures are forecast to remain below average through the weekend with highs most days in the 70s. Temperatures typically range from a low of 67 F to a high of 82 F.

    During next week, there are signs of some warmer weather for a few days. Temperatures may climb well into the 80s.

    AccuWeather meteorologists will also be monitoring the formation of Tropical Storm Cristobal in the southwestern Atlantic this weekend, which could kick up rough surf at the beaches next week.

    Tropical activity usually ramps up late in August. September is typically the most active month in terms of tropical storms and hurricanes in the Atlantic Basin.
