After passing north and south of the city for most of this week rain has finally started falling on New York this morning following the passage of the first of two cold fronts. This first front has cooled us down from a high of 90 in Central Park yesterday to the mid 60s this morning. Heavy cloud cover, potentially heavy rain this afternoon, and an easterly wind will keep today's high to the lower 70s.
Showers and thunderstorms are possible through about midnight tonight when a second cold front is expected to pass through the area. Tonight's front is pretty weak but it will bring much more stable air, killing off the precipitation. With all the moisture around some fog is possible tomorrow morning but that will quickly give way to sunny and mild conditions with a high in the mid 80s. Lots of sun is expected on Sunday and the temperature will again hit the mid 80s if not a couple of degrees higher.
Unsettled weather looks to return early next week as an upper level trough sets up over the Great Lakes on Monday and Tuesday. That positioning, combined with increasing humidity, makes showers and thunderstorms possible on both days. Warmer weather, with highs close to 90, is likely to follow by the middle of next week.
