Despite a damp start to Sunday, the weekend is still shaping up to end on a comfortable note around New York City.

Sunday will start with numerous clouds over New York City as a cold front swings though.

A shower or thunderstorm will also pass through during the morning but would only briefly interfere with any outdoor plans or those heading to church services.

Due to the spotty nature of the showers and thunderstorms, some parts of the city and suburbs will even escape the rain.

Any umbrellas that were needed in the morning (though remember to never use an umbrella during a thunderstorm) can be put away for the afternoon. The rain chance will be over and some sunshine will return to close out the weekend.

As high heat and humidity stays absent and temperatures instead rise into the lower 80s, the weather Sunday afternoon will be just as ideal as Saturday was for outdoor activities and sporting events.

One such event is the baseball game between the Mets and Chicago Cubs at Citi Field.

Monday will feature another day filled with sunshine and complimented by low humidity and highs in the lower 80s.

Tuesday is when a new storm system from the Midwest will return showers to New York City and force residents to grab their umbrellas out of the closet. meteorologists are concerned for a narrow band of heavy rain to accompany this storm into the mid-Atlantic and will be monitoring the potential for that band to renew the flood danger around New York City.
