NEW YORK (PIX11) – After facing a number of 90-degree days, the tri-state area got a break from the heat on Sunday.

Early cloud cover coupled with a sea breeze kept conditions from overheating and brought temperatures down to more seasonal levels. Afternoon highs only reached the 80s, and many coastal locations remained in the mid to upper 70s.

Looking ahead, people can expect conditions to warm up in the last week of August.

Temperatures will warm into the upper 80s and low 90s on Monday, with some additional highs in the 90s possible on Tuesday and Wednesday. It will also be quite humid.

Fortunately, a cold front will bring some relief in the form of showers and thunderstorms Tuesday evening through Wednesday morning. And, once that front crosses, cooler, drier air will move into the region.
