The early stages of the warmup will have a few bumps along the way.

A disturbance dropping southeastward from Canada may bring spotty shower or thunderstorm Friday afternoon and Saturday.

Patchy clouds will drift over the region through Friday night, but there should be some opportunity to catch Manhattanhenge.
