    NYC: Milder Weather Arrives with Easter Weekend

    The recent cool stretch of weather in New York City will depart for Easter weekend.

    A milder Saturday is shaping up for New York City despite the passage of a cold front early in the morning.

    With the air no longer blowing in from the cold ocean in the front's wake, temperatures will be able to rebound into the mid-60s.

    An increase in sunshine will compliment the mild air and make Saturday perfect for outdoor Easter festivities.


    Temperatures will take a tumble some on Easter Sunday as the wind direction flips around and the air will once again flow in from the cold ocean. Temperatures should still manage to climb to the 60-degree mark.

    Dry weather will hold through Sunday underneath a partly sunny sky, allowing Easter egg hunts and other festivities to go on as scheduled. This includes Sunday's Easter Parade and Easter Bonnet Festival.

    Residents and visitors will still need their jackets for Easter sunrise services. Temperatures Sunday morning are expected to dip to the lower 40s in Manhattan and even into the 30s in many suburbs.
