    Warmer and more humid air will surge into the New York City area during the first part of this week but will not stick around long.

    The departure of the wedge of high pressure that promoted a mostly rain-free weekend will open the door for the surge of air more typical of mid-summer into Wednesday.

    With the increased humidity be high temperatures well into the 80s to near 90. AccuWeather RealFeel® temperatures will spike well into the 90s during the late morning and afternoon hours, when the sun is out.

    A breeze off the ocean will keep the South Shore of Long Island slightly cooler.

    The combination of the warmth and humidity will create challenges and hazards for those who must engage in strenuous labor and those with respiratory issues.

    Afternoon thunderstorm activity through Tuesday should stay confined to the higher terrain well to the north and west of New York City in northwestern New Jersey and toward the Catskills.

    The daylight hours of Wednesday should also stay rain-free before a cold front returns a shower or thunderstorm at night and through Thursday and sweeps away the surge of warmth and humidity.

    A fresh shot of cooler and less humid air from Canada in the front's wake will lead to a pleasant Friday and start to the next weekend.
