Friday temperatures are on track to stay in the 70s and near 80 in the city, a cool relief after the humidity felt in the area over the last couple of days.

The boughts of rain early Friday and into the midday comes after strong and gusty storms that rumbled into the city Thursday evening brought a deluge of rain, plenty of thunder, lightning -- and leaving thousands customers on Long Island with no power.

However, there is better weather on the horizon. After the light rain moves out on Friday afternoon, a pleasant weekend with below-average temperatures and abundant sunshine awaits, with Saturday bringing along with it a lot of sunshine and temperatures reaching a high of 80, according to Storm Team 4.

However, this nice temperature may be short lived as there is the possibility of a few spotty showers between Sunday and Tuesday next week, which signals a return to high humidity.
