After a cool and damp day Friday in New York City, a dry and mild weekend is in store.
A damp breeze off the ocean will generally keep temperatures in the 40s on Friday.
The typical high for the city this time of the year is 57 F.
According to Senior Meteorologist Brett Anderson, "The easterly flow setup on Friday is very common for the mid-Atlantic during April into May."
In addition to low clouds, cool air and drizzle from the Atlantic, remnants of thunderstorms from the Midwest will reach the area in the form of rain.
One batch of rain is forecast to move out Friday morning with another batch due in later Friday into Friday night. It is possible some of the thunderstorms from the Midwest survive the trip into the cool air along the Atlantic coast. However, the cool air in the lowest levels of the atmosphere will limit the intensity of the storms.
Dry air is projected to sweep in over the weekend on brisk winds from the west and northwest.
High temperatures will generally be in the upper 50s to the lower 60s Saturday and Sunday.
