Summer temps to make a cameo this week

Don’t pack away your shorts and T-shirts yet.

The National Weather Service forecasts near-record highs for the city early this week, with temperatures reaching the 80s. Central Park will reach 78 degrees Monday, 12 degrees lower than the record set in 1938, 81 degrees Tuesday, a degree shy of the record set in 1928, and 81 Wednesday, two degrees lower than the record set in 1963.

“The normal high for this time of year is 64. It’s a nice little treat for us,” said NWS meteorologist Carlie Buccola.

A high pressure system off the southeast coast is causing the hotter weather, but it won’t be here for long.

Temperatures are expected to dip back to the lower 70s by Thursday and mid 60s by Friday, according to the NWS.
