Play video The above video details Northeast weather early this week.

An ocean storm that has been threatening a cloudy, rainy early week period for New York City will pass far enough east on early this week to keep the inclement weather away.

Weather related flight delays are not expected due to the storm. Tranquil weather will actually grip the region.

While travel on land will largely be void of weather delays, small crafts could encounter some choppy waters across Long Island Sound and the South Shore as the ocean storm churns offshore. Any small craft operators should exercise caution through Tuesday until the ocean storm moves far away.

Temperatures will be seasonable for the most part early this week with afternoon highs in the lower to mid-70s and overnight lows in the upper 50s. However, it will turn unusually warm Wednesday and Thursday as AccuWeather RealFeel temperatures reach the mid-80s during the afternoons.
