Play video Weather across the Northeast is detailed in the above AccuWeather.com video.

While the sun will be blocked by clouds at times, rain will avoid much of the area through Sunday.

A wedge of dry air along the I-95 corridor will fight to keep rain away. Nothing more than a brief shower will pass through.

Temperatures will continue to be held a bit below normal as humidity remains low.

The weather will be ideal for most outdoor activities ranging from jogging, swimming and block parties to construction, yard work and painting projects.

Temperatures at night into the weekend will dip into the 50s in the northern and western suburbs but will stop in the 60s in urban areas and at the beach.

The air will turn somewhat more humid on Monday before a greater surge of warmth and humid occurs for Tuesday, returning temperatures to the 90-degree mark.

AccuWeather.com meteorologists are concerned for that steamy air to trigger strong thunderstorms later Thursday.
