New York Fashion Week: Rain to Persist Through Weekend as Humidity Subsides

Wet conditions will continue through the weekend as New York Fashion Week goes into full swing.

Though the world-renowned event kicked off on Thursday, Sept. 10, to a stormy start, the unsettled conditions will deliver cool, less humid air to the region.

A semi-annual event, Fashion Week will feature spring/summer 2016 collections from iconic designers including Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Monique Lhuillier, Tommy Hilfiger and Michael Kors. Official shows will take place at the Skylight at Moynihan Station and the Skylight at Clarkson Square, two new locations for this year's event.

Other popular designers such as Kate Spade New York, Christian Siriano, Diane Von Furstenburg and Marc Jacobs will showcase their collections at various locations across the city.

Friday will be the nicest day until early next week, AccuWeather Meteorologist Ed Vallee said. However, the calm conditions will be brief as the chance for showers returns on Saturday.

"Showers and a possible thunderstorms are likely for Saturday afternoon into the evening," Vallee said.

The day will not be a washout, but those traveling from venue to venue should keep an umbrella handy. Evening plans will be impacted by the rain as well.

Those hoping for a dry end to the weekend will see little relief from the wet conditions.

Sunday will feature a continued threat for showers, but the day is not expected to be a washout. Temperatures will settle near the 80-degree mark.

When the Tommy Hilfiger collection takes the runway on Monday, New York City will be entering a stretch of dry, pleasant conditions.

As humidity levels stay low, temperatures will take a slight drop into the upper 70s through the middle of the week.
