A few days after a chilly storm departs the Northeast, warm weather will make a strong comeback in parts of the Midwest and the East later in the week.

Areas receiving accumulating snow in New York state and New England could be 50 degrees warmer by Thursday and Friday.

If the cold rain, snow, biting wind, or freezing temperatures don't suit you, just wait a few days as indications are temperatures will swing to above-average levels later this week all the way from west to east from the Central states to the Atlantic Seaboard.

The air mass moving in late in the week into next weekend has the potential to bring 90-degree temperatures to a broad area.

There will be some resistance to the warming trend next week, cautions Expert Senior Meteorologist Dave Dombek.

"There will still be an active storm track from parts of the Great Lakes region to the Northeast for a time," Dombek said.

A zone of showers and thunderstorms could shift from the northern Plains to these areas prior to the arrival of much warmer weather.

There is also tropical moisture meteorologists are keeping an eye on.

A slow-moving, weak tropical or tropical system could drift northward from Florida along the East Coast later in the week, acting as a spoiler for some locations to an otherwise lengthy stretch of sunny, hot weather.

The details will unfold on the coverage and magnitude of the early June warmth and rainy spots in the near future.
