The temperature in Central Park hit 90 degrees yesterday, the first time in three years that we've hit 90 in May and the earliest we've hit that mark since 2010. With the Bermuda High making its first appearance of the season we can expect three more days with temperatures rising to at least the mid 80s. The humidity went way up overnight, dew points are now in the lower 60s, so unlike yesterday we are in for a warm, muggy afternoon with a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms as the atmosphere destabilizes.

Tomorrow's forecast is only slightly different than today's. Saturday's high in the city will rebound to flirt with 90 degrees. A sea breeze is likely to develop Saturday afternoon so look for it to remain several degrees cooler along the beaches to start the holiday weekend. Once again there will be a slight chance of showers or thunderstorms but those are likely to stay north of the city. More sun is expected on Sunday, making it the better day to view Manhattanhenge, with the high staying in the upper 80s.

Memorial Day is shaping up to be cooler and wet. The upper level ridge bringing the warm weather will start breaking down and moving out to sea. As the ridge departs a cold front will slowly approach from the west. Early indications are there will be lots of moisture associated with the front. Look for cloudy skies, a good chance of rain, and a high in the mid 70s on Monday.
