A cool front will slowly push South overnight. Unfortunately, the threat of torrential rains exists for much of the tri-state area through the night. The front will remain over the region and thunderstorms are forecast to train over the same areas. The ground is completely saturated. Locally up to three inches of rain is possible in the tropical airmass. A Flash Flood Watch is up for much of the region through late tonight. Never drive through a flooded roadway; you can’t judge how deep the water is. TURN AROUND, DON’T DROWN.
In addition, scattered severe thunderstorms are possible. A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is until 11pm for most of New Jersey and New York City. Any of the storms have the capability of producing winds in excess of 58mph. Torrential rain and frequent cloud to ground lightning will accompany the storms.
A cooler flow off the Atlantic will be with us for Tuesday. A mix of clouds and sun is expected. Readings will be several degrees below the average high of the mid 80s.
The heat will return for the mid to late week period as a bubble of hot air develops around a Western Atlantic high pressure system. Hazy skies are expected with isolated afternoon storms possible on Wednesday. Thursday and Friday will be hot and humid and mainly storm-free.
Saturday will be sizzlin’ with scattered afternoon storms with an approaching cool front.
Keep it here for a no nonsense, no hype forecast.
