    After a stretch of tranquil weather, conditions will be unsettled Wednesday through Friday, forecasters say.

    But by Saturday morning, the weather will begin to improve, and it will be even nicer on Sunday and Monday, according to Doug Simonian, meteorologist with New York Metro Weather.

    Under mostly cloudy skies, NOAA advises of a chance of showers and thunderstorms Wednesday and Thursday. By Friday, skies will become partly sunny, but precipitation chances remain, according to NOAA.

    The greatest chance of thunderstorms will be on Wednesday, with the possibility of a few strong thunderstorms during the afternoon and evening, the National Weather Service advises.

    The atmosphere will begin to stabilize by Saturday morning, and with a high pressure system moving in, skies will become sunnier, according to Simonian, who says while most of the day should be nice, there will be a chance of a scattered shower or thunderstorm.

    A disturbance will be completely gone by Sunday, providing warmer and even sunnier skies for Sunday and Monday, Simonian says.

    Temperatures near the beaches will be around the mid to upper 60s Saturday and Sunday and near 70 on Monday. Further inland away from the cool ocean, temperatures will be in the low to mid 70s Saturday and Sunday and near 80 on Monday.
