This past September took the title as the wettest NYC September in the past 154 years with a total monthly rainfall of 14 inches. And at this point we’d even go as far as to accuse the rain of mocking us, as week after week the sun would shine but the second the weekend hit we’d get showered once again.
In fact, it’s rained for the last seven weekends in a row, but that’s finally coming to an end this weekend! Cue the sigh of relief.
According to AccuWeather, this Saturday, October 28th, is expected to be “Mostly sunny and remaining warm; warmest weekend until spring,” with a high of 78º and a low of 62º.
And, though the sun won’t be shining as bright on Sunday, October 29th, the dry weather is expected to continue throughout the day with part sun and a high of 74º.
There is a 40% chance of showers Sunday night, but as long as it waits until the night we’ll take it.
As for the rest of the fall meteorologists have predicted higher temperatures than normal in NYC. Now if we could only get the rain to cooperate it’d be a pretty enjoyable season!
Our advice: get outside and take advantage of this dry weekend as much as you can–there’s a ton of places around NYC to see fall’s gorgeous colorful foliage, and though it’s not as vibrant this year it’s still stunning!
Plus, there’s endless Halloween events going on this weekend you won’t want to miss if you’re looking for some spooky fun!
