A good old-fashioned nor’easter is set to dump rain on NYC this weekend

There's no shortage of great things to do in New York this weekend. From Panorama Music Festival at Randalls Island Park to a glorious Selena Sing-Along at Videology in Brooklyn, events across town are pulling out all of the stops over the next few days. But some of the revelries might get a bit wet when a summertime nor’easter hits the city late on Friday night.

The weather phenomenon normally takes place during the cooler months of the year, bringing heavy snowfalls to the northeastern part of the country. They typically occur when a storm brews along the Atlantic coast and is carried by winds out of the northeast (hence the playful name). 

Get out your umbrellas: Heavy rains are expected to hit the city late Friday night or early Saturday morning and could persist past dawn on Saturday, according to the National Weather Service.

The weather is expected to clear up by Sunday, giving way for balmy temperatures in the low 80s.
