New York City will escape the unseasonably cold temperatures through the rest of the workweek.
But the brief respite comes with a price -- rain showers.
Clouds will move in on Wednesday, with a chance of showers after 1 p.m., said Jay Engle, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. Highs Wednesday will be in the mid-40s, with a chance of rain and fog continuing overnight.
Thursday will see temperatures climb to the high upper 50s, with a chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon.

“With that comes a price, an 80 percent chance of rain, and up to half an inch possible,” Engle said.
There’s a chance of rain on Friday morning as well, with cloudy skies and temperatures reaching 50 degrees.
The cold snap returns this weekend, with temperatures expected in the 30s on Saturday and Sunday.
Average highs this time of year should be in the low 50s, with lows in the upper 30s, Engle said, adding recent temperatures have been at least 10 degrees below normal.
