Today's high will be in the lower to mid 80s, making this the 15th consecutive day with warmer than average temperatures and the fifth straight day with temperatures more than ten degrees above normal. The peak of the heat was on Sunday when Central Park hit 91 degrees, the first day over 90 since August 1st.

This unusually warm weather will not last much longer as a cold front is going to sweep through the area early tomorrow morning. Eastern Long Island may get a fair amount of rain as the front interacts with the western edge of now tropical storm Maria, but the city should remain dry. Thursday's high will be in the upper 70s and it will be much less humid than today. Friday will be even cooler with a high around 70, which is normal for late-September.

A second cold front is expected late Friday night. That passage will keep the weekend afternoon highs in the upper 60s. There is a slight chance of showers on Saturday but the skies should clear out for Sunday as a high pressure system arrives behind the front.
