NEW YORK — The dreary conditions will continue heading into the weekend. A moist southerly flow kept clouds around the region Thrusday and there were a few sprinkles scattered about.

The front will be slow to depart keeping the risk of showers through Saturday.
It will remain overcast through Thursday night. Some low level fog may redevelop, but it won't be as widespread with a slight breeze around. Some showers may develop from time to time with the air so saturated at this time. Overnight lows will be in the mid 60s.
Expect more of the same for much of Friday. A shower or two cannot be ruled out at any point. The sun may break through the clouds during the afternoon and that will bring temperatures up to around 80 degrees
Eventually the front will slowly drift toward the coast allowing the chance for some thunderstorms to develop late. While they are expected to weaken by the time it gets to the coast, inland sections may deal with the possibility of a strong to severe line of thunderstorms.
