    NYC: Even Warmer Air to Pour in for Memorial Day

    While Sunday featured rising temperatures, even warmer air will reach New York City on Memorial Day.

    Temperatures will once again soar on Memorial Day, exceeding Sunday's high and and reaching a high in the middle 80s.

    Humidity will also stay low and prevent the holiday from feeling muggy.

    The other good news for those attending memorial ceremonies, picnics, concerts and parades on Monday is that thunderstorms streaming into northern New England will stay well to the north of the city and its suburbs.

    The Little Neck-Douglaston Parade in Queens, one of the largest Memorial Day parades in the country, should have no weather issues. However, those attending will want to pack some sunscreen and have sunglasses handy as the sun will be strong.

    Those heading to the beach for opening season should not be fooled by the warm air temperatures. Water temperatures remain on the chilly side and may be dangerous to enter. Surf temperatures range from the middle 50s to near 60. With water this cool, there is a risk of cold water shock.
