Heavy Thunderstorms Coming This Week Will Finally Break NYC’s Brutal Heatwave

FINALLY!

NYC has been hit with many heatwaves this summer; so much so that it’s officially the fourth hottest year on record for the city. And don’t forget, NYC has also been deemed a “subtropical climate zone.”

There has been a Heat Advisory in effect the past three days in NYC, ending at 8pm tonight (8/12), and the heat and humidity has been brutal. But luckily, some rain is coming.

According to the National Weather Service, a cold front approached the New York area starting last night, and is slowly moving through today and tonight. That means that temperatures will be decreasing through Friday (along with humidity!), but that there will be thunderstorms as a result.

Even torrential downpours are possible…

According to Accuweather, storms will begin this afternoon around 3-4pm for a heavy hit, and then will be on and off through Friday, mixed with some clouds and spots of sun. It’s also shaping up to be a sunny—and finally, cooler—weekend too, with less clouds and temps topping at 80° (much better than 90°) on Saturday.

We’re ready for it!
