After a brief cooldown, very warm and humid weather will bounce back in New York City during the Labor Day weekend.

High temperatures around the region, including at the U.S. Open, will rise from the lower 80s on Saturday to the upper 80s on Sunday and could flirt with the 90-degree mark on Labor Day.

An increase in humidity, which will especially be noticed Sunday and Labor Day, will contribute to even higher AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures.

For people heading to the beach, surf conditions will be much better than recent days on Saturday. However, an increase in winds at the coast will stir up surf some for a time on Sunday.

Much of the time will be free of rain this weekend. However, there will be spotty showers and thunderstorms popping up in the building warmth and humidity Sunday and Monday.

The afternoon hours will be the most active time of these days.

Indications are that there will be more warm, rather than cool, days through the middle of September, which will be a bit of a switch from most of the summer.
