The humidity is back and with its return comes the threat of severe thunderstorms late Saturday that could bring damaging winds and hail.

Storm Team 4 says strong to severe thunderstorms could develop around mid-afternoon and continuing through Saturday evening, although they're likely to stay south of New York City.

The threat is not widespread, but anyone hit by storms has the potential to see damaging winds.

Temperatures will stay with through the weekend with both days hovering around the 90s.

An air quality alert was also issued for Long Island and parts of southern Connecticut through late Saturday night. Children and anyone with respiratory diseases are advised to limit any strenuous outdoor activities.

Any storm-like conditions that develop throughout the evening are expected to carry over into the early morning hours of Sunday before the day dries out.

Storm Team 4 says Father's Day should stay dry for the first official day of summer.
