    NYC: Heat Takes a Hike; Rain to Stay South This Weekend

    In the wake of the hottest weather of the year so far, cooler air has returned to the New York City area Thursday and seasonable temperatures will hold through the weekend.

    A zone of rain and thunderstorms will mark the leading edge of the cooler weather on Thursday.

    The rain is the remnants of strong thunderstorms that hit northern Illinois from Wednesday.

    Dry air is forecast to push southward Thursday night into Friday.

    A zone of clouds, showers and thunderstorms will reach from the Upper Midwest to the Ohio Valley and lower mid-Atlantic Saturday and Sunday. While there is a chance that this zone may bulge to the northeast over the weekend, odds favor dry weather holding on around New York City.

    Temperatures flirted with the 90-degree F mark Tuesday and Wednesday. Highs both days were 89 at Central Park. The latest NYC has hit 90 in the summer season was on July 26, 1877. On average the first 90-degree temperatures occurs during late May.

    High temperatures Thursday through the weekend will be in the 70s to near 80.
