After a stormy end to the week in New York City, much drier and more comfortable air has settled into the area.

This pleasant weather will last right into the first part of this week.

Humidity will remain quite low this weekend with abundant sunshine. High temperatures once again on Sunday will top out near 80 degrees.

The battle between summer and fall will continue over the next two weeks, according to Long-Range Forecaster Paul Pastelok, as temperatures continue to fluctuate.

"The pattern through the Labor Day weekend looks to be progressive with episodes of warm and cool conditions for the Northeast," Pastelok said.

It will turn unsettled across the entire Northeast early next week, including in New York City. There will be a threat for showers and thunderstorms each day from late Monday through Wednesday.
