Seems like Mother Nature isn’t done with rainy weekends in NYC, as a storm is on track to hit the city this Sunday. Heavy rain is in the forecast with winds greater than 40 mph.
Temperatures on Sunday could reach as high as 60 degrees. However, by nightfall they will drop into the mid 40s. Light showers are forecasted to start in the morning. By the afternoon, steady rain is expected to fall with a total of 1-2 inches by night. Unfortunately, the rain will most likely conflict with Fifth Avenue’s Open Streets yet again.
However, there are still plenty of ways to enjoy a rainy day in NYC.
According to NBC 4 New York, the heavy rain could threaten low-lying and vulnerable areas with coastal flooding. And though some may be hopeful to see snow this weekend, it doesn’t seem likely. Yet, since the storm is still a few days out, the forecast is subject to change.
Though Sunday will most likely be a soaker, Saturday at least looks dry with temperatures in the mid 50s during the day before dropping into the low 40s.
As for the following week, expect sunny skies with temperatures in the 40s and yup, you guessed it, more rain to come by the weekend.
