New York City Weather: From Mild to Wild

Don’t let unseasonably mild conditions today fool you. It will be cloudy with a high around 60, but that changes fast overnight. Rainfall starts this evening and gets heavy later. The worst part, though, are predicted gale force winds of 25 to 35 miles per hour. The national weather service issued a wind advisory for gusts over 50 between 11:00 p.m. tonight and Friday morning at 10:00.

On Friday, it stays windy, driving temperatures from an early high of 61 all the way down to 35 by day’s end.

High winds whirl up again on Saturday when temperatures rebound into the 40s. But the whipsawing New York City weather mellows to a calmer 39 degrees on Sunday under clear skies.

For the coming week, more of the same. High temperatures top out around 60 by Wednesday before plummeting on Thursday with possible snow showers in the afternoon.
