New York Fashion Week kicked off Thursday, Sept. 10, as storms invade the region after days of sizzling heat.
Storms capable of producing localized flash flooding may bring hazards for those traveling to different venues on the first official day of the event.
A semi-annual event, Fashion Week will feature spring/summer 2016 collections from iconic designers including Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Monique Lhuillier, Tommy Hilfiger and Michael Kors. Official shows will take place at the Skylight at Moynihan Station and the Skylight at Clarkson Square, two new locations for this year's event.
Other popular designers such as Kate Spade New York, Christian Siriano, Diane Von Furstenburg and Marc Jacobs will showcase their collections at various locations across the city.
"Minor localized street flooding is possible as the storms bring the potential for heavy rain on Thursday," AccuWeather Meteorologist Mike Doll said.
An overall muggy day is expected with rain and high humidity.
Keep an eye on incoming storms down to a precise street address or GPS location with AccuWeather's MinueCast®, a patented minute-by-minute highly localized precipitation forecast. Those traveling across the city to attend multiple shows should keep umbrellas handy.
"The storms on Thursday will clean out the atmosphere and erase the high humidity in the city by Friday," AccuWeather Meteorologist Steve Travis said.
High temperatures will be in the low 80s F through the weekend, making for more comfortable conditions.
Friday will shape up to be dry with partly sunny skies.
However, rain may return to the region on Saturday. While it isn't expected to be a washout, showers and a possible thunderstorm could make for disruptive conditions for travel throughout the city in the late afternoon to evening hours.
Showers will linger through Sunday as well.
After the wet weekend, conditions will dry out early next week.
MinuteCast is available for free in the AccuWeather mobile app available across all major mobile devices, and through the AccuWeather.com classic and mobile websites. The feature's interactive design shows precipitation pinpointed by the minute for the next two hours for your exact street address or GPS location. Now, deciding what to wear and staying in control of the most fashionable looks all day and night has never been easier, exclusively from AccuWeather.
