NYC: Storm Risk to be Low Into Weekend

Thunderstorms will be few and far between each day through the weekend around New York City.

A light flow of air from Ontario will allow humidity levels to lower gradually into the first part of the weekend.

Most areas through Sunday will be free of rain. However, a stray, popup downpour cannot be ruled out in the afternoons and evenings through Friday and again later in the day on Sunday.

High temperatures each day will be in the lower 80s, which is typical for late June. Each day will bring partial sunshine. Temperatures will fall through the 70s during the evening games at Yankee Stadium for the series with the Red Sox.

Warmth and humidity will build during the first part of next week, before cooler air moves in over the Independence Day weekend.

Both the transition to warm and humid conditions and then to cooler weather can be accompanied by strong thunderstorms. The details will unfold over the next few days.
