NEW YORK — A severe thunderstorm warning has been issued for Rockland and Westchester Counties in New York, as well as Fairfield County in Connecticut.

We had a break from the humidity Wednesday but it will be short-lived as Thursday will be another hot and sticky day.

Our second heat wave of the season will continue Thursday as temperatures climb into the 90s for the fifth day in a row.

We can expect partly sunny skies Thursday afternoon with a high of 92 in the city, low 90s over inland sections and in the upper 80s over coastal spots.

Late in the day, a cold front could spark a few scattered thunderstorms and it may contain some gusty winds.

The risk of showers and thunderstorms will continue into the overnight and last through the morning hours on Friday. Heading into the afternoon, conditions should improve. Temperatures will hold in the mid 80 as the winds shift the north and northeast.

We should stay in the upper 80s on Saturday as high pressure sticks around. It will also be the pick of the weekend since a disturbance will approach on Sunday allow the risk of afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Temperatures will hold in the upper 80s.
