In a couple of days, the Mid-Atlantic will face elevated-level conditions, while critical-level conditions will persist in the southwest U.S. for the next few days. Therefore, NYC should prepare for the thermometer to rise as Summer-like temperatures will finally be appearing. Shorts, polos, and t-shirts will be the norm... Hello Sunshine!!!
