    A mild weekend is in store, but Sunday will be wet and stormy around New York City.

    The sunny sky from Saturday will not last into Sunday as rain arrives during the middle of the day and becomes heavy at times for the afternoon.

    The drenching rain threatens to slow motorists--including those heading home from their Christmas Day destinations or heading to the city for New Year's Eve celebrations. Airline passengers should prepare for possible delays.

    Those heading to the Giants game at MetLife Stadium should bring along rain gear and be prepared for a soaking rain throughout the game.


    Due to the warmer air, there is not a threat of Sunday's rain starting as or ending as snow. The same cannot be said for places north of I-84.

    Rain is expected to end Sunday night, leading to another day of highs in the low 40s on Monday.

    However, the passage of a cold front will usher in the arrival of fresh arctic air for the last hours of 2013.


    Temperatures will struggle to reach the freezing mark on Tuesday, making for a frigid New Year's Eve celebration in Times Square as temperatures fall back through the 20s.

    A storm is being watched for the potential for significant snow before the end of next week.
