NEW YORK CITY — Memorial Day weekend got off to a rainy start in New York on Friday, and the weather wasn't expected to improve until Monday.

Rain spread across the city Saturday and temperatures were forecast to hover in the upper 60s, with wind making it feel even cooler, according to the National Weather Service.

"Unfortunately, the timing of the low pressure system we're seeing swim through is that it will take its sweet time to head up to Maine," said Joey Picca, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

"We're going to see a couple of pretty raw days here in the region."

The rain was forecast to taper off on Sunday, but temperatures were only expected to rise into the upper 60s, with strong winds. 

The spat of spitting rain and cool weather will likely be gone by Monday, Picca said, with the weather service predicting a sunny Memorial Day with highs in the low 70s and a low in the 50s.

"Monday seems to be the best day of the long weekend," Picca said.
