A surge of warmth is on the horizon for New York City, just in time for Memorial Day.
However, the city will remain unsettled through Sunday with a shower or thunderstorm threatening to dampen parts of the city Sunday afternoon.
Temperatures will rebound to the upper 70s as humidity remains low.
While a disturbance may cause showers and storms to erupt over parts of New England and upstate New York on Memorial Day, a mix of sunshine and clouds is in the offing around New York City with a high forecast in the lower 80s. Continued low humidity will prevent the day from feeling muggy.
For people attending memorial ceremonies, picnics, concerts, parades on Monday, the weather should cooperate.
The Little Neck-Douglaston Parade in Queens, one of the largest Memorial Day parades in the country, should have no weather issues. However, those attending will want to pack some sunscreen and have sunglasses handy as the sun will be strong.
Those heading to the beach for opening season should not be fooled by the warm air temperatures. Water temperatures remain on the chilly side and may be dangerous to enter. Surf temperatures range from the middle 50s to near 60. With water this cool, there is a risk of cold water shock.
The risk of showers and thunderstorms will return on Tuesday as the warmth holds and humidity increases.
