Further northeast, a line of heavy thunderstorms is developing over southern CT just north of New Haven. This line is capable of producing heavy rain, gusty winds and flash flooding with up to 1" of rain possible, with the line expected to slowly drop south towards coastal CT.
Currently, scattered heavy storms continue over parts of western Bergen, NW Passaic, and central Rockland counties. Meanwhile, the severe thunderstorms over central NJ earlier this afternoon have moved offshore, and widespread moderate to heavy rain with occasional rumbles of thunder is filling in to the north, over northern NJ and NYC. This part of the storm was not modeled well, as some of the shorter range models failed to depict the central NJ storms earlier this afternoon, and the steady Mid Atlantic rainfall was modeled to stay south of the area. The rain and thunder will spread into NYC and Long Island slowly within the next 1-2 hours, with scattered strong storms slowly dropping southeast into southern CT. Occasional periods of rain and thunder are expected to continue through the evening hours, then gradually ending, with at least another 1/4 inch, locally up to/over 1/2 inch, of additional rain expected.
