NEW YORK — After a gorgeous Thursday, the unsettled pattern continues as a weak system brings the threat of some light rain on Friday morning. Friday afternoon and much of Saturday will be fine, but a more impressive system will bring rain back into the forecast during the latter part of the weekend.

Clouds will increase Thursday evening as high pressure moves offshore. A fast-moving system will then move through the Ohio Valley, bringing some light rain after midnight and through Friday morning. Overnight lows will end up in the upper 40s.

After the rain tapers off Friday morning, skies will clear out and temperatures will respond very nicely. A warm westerly wind will bring temperatures up into the lower 60s in the city. Some areas west of the city could easily climb closer to 70 once again.

Saturday starts out fine with partly sunny skies. Temperatures will be a little cooler as the winds will be coming off the ocean. Highs will only be in the lower 50s.

A warm front will make its way toward the region and bring back showers by Saturday night.

The chance of rain will continue heading into Sunday as the storm system crosses through the region. A trailing cold front will pass through Sunday evening allowing for the chance of some heavier downpours and a thunderstorm. Forecasted temperatures will be in the upper 50s, but if there is a break and the sun peaks out, highs could climb into the 60s.
