NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Break out your spring -- maybe even summer -- gear, because the mercury is rising. But, it will be short-lived, as a Nor'easter is rearing its head mid-week.

Saturday is warmer with a high of 67 degrees in the city and low 70s in some inland suburbs -- but it'll be in the 50s across Long Island coastal Connecticut, according to AccuWeather. It will largely be cloudy with some afternoon sunny breaks.

For Saturday night, it will be partly to mostly cloudy and mild, with a low of 54 degrees.

Beginning Sunday, it will get cooler and breezy with clouds and some showers. The high will be 59 degrees. It will be much colder Sunday night with a low of 34 degrees.

Monday will be breezy and chilly despite sunshine, with a high of 47.

Temperatures are expected to rebound to the low 50s on Tuesday, but AccuWeather is monitoring the possibility of a strong coastal storm -- aka a Nor'easter -- around
the middle of next week that may bring with it heavy rain and strong winds.
