New York will welcome a Spring reprieve this week.
After starting out in the upper 40s Monday, the city could see record highs of up to 70 degrees, according to the National Weather Service’s forecast.
Tuesday will bring a light drizzle, but temperatures will remain unseasonably warm with a high of 66 degrees, according to NWS meteorologist Faye Morrone.
“The normal high is about 43,” she said.
A foggy night and morning will make way for sunny skies and a high of 70 Wednesday, the forecast said. If the mercury does reach this peak, it will break Feb. 21’s record high of 68 degrees, which was set in 1930, according to Morrone.
Although the spring temperatures won’t be around for the end of the week, highs will remain above normal.
Thursday’s temperatures will top out at 49 with a chance of showers, while Friday should reach up to 47 degrees.
