In the wake of a stormy finish to the week, sunshine and less humid conditions returned to wrap up the weekend. Saturday's storm did end in time for spectators to catch a glimpse of the Manhattanhenge. New Yorkers enjoyed a view of the "full sun" between buildings Saturday evening as the sun kissed the New York City grid. Sunday evening offers a "half sun" viewing at around 8:21 p.m.

Expect increasing clouds overnight with temperatures in the low 70s. There’s also a chance for showers to develop after midnight. Then more late day showers and thunderstorms are possible Monday. Any showers and thunderstorms that develop will be capable of producing heavy rainfall and flash flooding.

Normal highs should return as well. However, the humidity will make it feel warmer and a bit sticky.

Even though Fay has moved on, the storm left behind choppy sees. That said, there is a high rip current risk Sunday and Monday at Atlantic beaches.

Looking ahead to the week

While parts of the United States will likely get record temperatures, the NY Metro area will dodge record heat. Keep in mind that highs will average in the upper 80s. However, “feel like” temperatures are slated to average in the 90s.
