It’s a very similar day today with mostly cloudy skies and temps reaching the upper 70s. Heading into late this afternoon and evening, the shower risk goes up a bit for coastal locations. The city could see a few showers, but it likely remains mainly dry north and west of that.

For tonight, Long Island and the NJ Shore have the best bet at seeing some steadier batches of rain move through as a low passes by offshore. The east end likely sees some heavier downpours overnight, where 1-2″ could fall. Closer to the city, some lighter showers are possible, and farther inland just cloudy skies are expected. Lows will be in the 60s around NYC and 50s for the NW suburbs.
