As of this afternoon, isolated showers formed to the west of NYC, although most of the region remains dry. The area is generally cloudy as of 5 PM with temperatures in the low to mid 70s in western areas and the mid to upper 70s elsewhere. Scattered storms will continue tonight and on Thursday as a warm front slowly moves through, with highs on Thursday and Friday expected to reach the upper 70s to low 80s but with increased humidity and warmer overnight lows as well, ranging from the mid 60s inland to low 70s near NYC. Storms on Friday may be capable of heavy rainfall, locally over 1 inch, before the front moves through overnight.
Drier conditions will return behind the front for the weekend and early-mid next week as a weak high pressure gradually slides into the region. Highs will gradually cool down from the low-mid 80s on Saturday to the upper 70s-low 80s next week; some showers are possible on Tuesday, with the next chance of rain towards late next week or next weekend. More information will be posted tomorrow with a full forecast update.
