New Yorkers are expected to feel the heat again following a week of cooled-down temperatures and thunderstorms. 

An overcast Wednesday will make way for a mostly clear and sunny weekend, the National Weather Service says.

While there's still a 50% chance showers and thunderstorms will interrupt your afternoon and evening plans Wednesday, the NWS predicts the days following the storm will see a gradual warm-up.

Temperatures in the city are predicted to reach a high of 81 Wednesday, followed by highs of 82 on Friday, 85 on Saturday and 89 on Sunday, according to the National Weather Service.

New Yorkers can expect a mostly sunny weekend, with a low, 20% chance of showers daily. 

The city saw lows of 70 degrees this week, with thunderstorms putting a damper on the welcome weather.

NWS meteorologist Carlie Buccola says the temps are to be expected as we approach the autumn season. 

“The normal high is around 83 degrees with a low of 69 degrees — so this is right around the normal temperatures for this time of year,” Buccola explains.
