    NYC: Thunderstorm to Return on Sunday

    By By Kristina Pydynowski, senior meteorologist
    August 16, 2014, 2:50:27 PM EDT

    Saturday will be the better day for weekend outdoor activities around New York City with a shower or thunderstorm set to return on Sunday.

    Instead of umbrellas, residents and visitors will want to grab sunglasses and apply sunscreen before heading out to enjoy Saturday's rain-free and mostly sunny day.

    Anyone who opts to wear long-sleeved shirts and light jackets in the early morning will be changing or putting the jackets away by the afternoon with temperatures set to rebound to the lower 80s.

    Low humidity will make the day even more enjoyable to be outside.


    An increase in clouds Saturday night will be a sign that the pleasant weather starting the weekend will not last.

    A more humid Sunday will then unfold as a storm system dropping down from Canada pushes a shower or thunderstorm through the city.

    While Sunday will be far from a washout and all the ingredients for a repeat of the historic flooding at Islip will not be present, any shower or thunderstorm threatens to interfere with outdoor activities and sporting events briefly.

    One such activity will be the baseball game between the Mets and the Chicago Cubs at Citi Field Sunday afternoon.


    A dry Monday will follow the weekend, but showers and thunderstorms may quickly return on Tuesday. AccuWeather.com meteorologists will be monitoring the potential for downpours to renew the flood danger.
