NYC’s Sky to Remain a Nice, Soothing Gray for Most of the Week

Good news for those who found themselves overwhelmed by this weekend’s sunny weather and the attendant pressure to make the most of it by drinking outdoors or going to the beach: We’re in for the longest stretch of gray days since January 2013. Thanks to a series of weak low pressure systems, clouds are expected to cover 70 percent of the sky above New York City until Saturday afternoon. This means cooler temperatures, but only a little rain, so there will be plenty of opportunities for long, contemplative walks and stuff like that. Plus, people won’t have any reason to worry about what they’re missing by working indoors all day. Enjoy!
