The Tri-State area's first spring thunderstorm is expected to arrive Friday, along with potentially record high temperatures.
Thick fog hovering over the city will clear up by Thursday afternoon. Several hours of clear skies will be replaced by scattered showers and thunderstorms late-Thursday into Friday morning.
A storm that is bringing severe weather to southeastern U.S. states could bring thunder and lightning to the Tri-State through midday Friday.
Temperatures could get so warm Friday that a 1922 record high of 76 degrees in Central Park could be replaced. But New Yorkers won't have much fun in the warm weather, however, as forecasters also predict powerful winds and gusts between 40-50 mph for most of the day.
Saturday will be the day to enjoy the outdoors, with clear skies and temperatures still relatively warm. Rain is expected to return on Sunday with highs in the low-60s.
