New Yorkers won't be on cloud nine in this weather.

Monday's dreary conditions will continue through the week, reportedly the longest run of cloudy days since January 2013.

Through Friday night, clouds will cover at least 70 percent of the sky, according to forecasts from the National Weather Service.


The gloomy weather is caused by a cluster of weather systems, service meteorologist Tim Morrin explained.

A slow-moving frontal boundary from the west will settle across the area Tuesday and a "back door" cold front will pass through that night, followed by another system.

"All that moisture coming in is going to contribute to the cloud cover," Morrin said.

Daytime temperatures will hover in the high-70s, according to weather service predictions. There's a chance of rain Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, too.

"Rain events will be hit and miss, off and on," Morrin said.

But every cloud does have a silver lining: Saturday is expected to be partly sunny with a high near 80 degrees.
