Sweater weather is approaching in NYC

Get ready to break out those hoodies, folks — because the city is on the brink of sweater weather.

Meteorologists expect the mercury to dip down for good in the coming days, thanks to a massive cold front that ushered in damaging winds and annoying bouts of rain on Wednesday evening.

“No sign of toasty temperatures anytime soon,” said AccuWeather senior meteorologist Dave Samuhel.

The cool weather is forecast to bring more showers on Thursday night and Friday morning, but after that, it’s clear skies. “Everything looks dry for the weekend,” Samuhel said.

Wednesday’s spat of wet weather extended from Montreal down to Syracuse and the Big Apple, with reported showers and thunderstorms along the I-95 corridor.

Experts had warned of the potential for falling trees, due to the saturated state of the ground.

“The trees have drawn up a great deal of water,” said senior meteorologist Alex Sosnowski. “The trees are literally top-heavy now, so any moderate gust of wind can knock them over.”

Driving was expected to be treacherous — with visibility on roads between Washington, DC, and New York City reportedly just a few hundred feet.

Thursday will be mostly cloudy and less humid, with a high of 72 in Gotham and 70 in the suburbs, according to AccuWeather.

“It’ll be much more comfortable,” said Samuhel. “Not like the steam bath [Wednesday].”
