The good news these will be moving and not sitting over the same areas for hours at a time. As we get some daytime heating, a few scattered thunderstorms may develop as well.READ MORE: COVID Vaccine Mandate For New York City Teachers To Take Effect After Federal Appeals Court Lifts Temporary Ban

Any lingering shower activity will end heading into the evening and skies finally clear out overnight. Lows will be in the 60s and low 70s.
