Balmy Thursday gives way to cooler temps over the weekend, next week


New Yorkers will get their first real taste of spring Thursday– though the balmy weather is not expected to last.

Temperatures around the city will soar to a high of 70 degrees, which will make it the warmest day of the year so far.

“Normals this time of the year are in the upper 40s to to low 50s for the New York City area,” said National Weather Service meteorologist James Tomasini, who added that the early spring will be short-lived.

After a chance of rain Thursday night into Friday, more seasonal temps will return over the weekend and into next week.

“We will have another shot of cold air behind the cold front early next week … Monday highs are back in the upper 40s, which is right around normal for this time of year, and then even lower in the mid-40s on Tuesday and Wednesday, and then back up into the upper 40s for next Thursday,” he said.

But this Thursday already earned a coveted 9/10 rating by New York Metro Weather in an early morning post on X.

The only parts of the city that won’t be experiencing records for the year will be coastal spots like New York City’s beaches, due to onshore breezes from the cold ocean, Tomasini said.
