8:00 PM: Thunderstorms Approaching
A line of scattered thunderstorms associated with a cold front, some of these storms locally heavy, is currently approaching the western parts of the area towards NW NJ and Orange County in SE NY. While these storms are not severe, they are capable of containing brief downpours. These storms will slowly move NE through northern NJ and SE NY through the rest of the evening and the early overnight hours, getting into NYC by at least 11 PM. The heaviest rain is expected west of NYC, where at least 1/4 inch of rain is expected, locally higher. The showers will struggle to make it east of NYC, with only isolated showers expected in most of Long Island and southern CT.
Stay tuned for a detailed discussion later this evening about tomorrow’s significant storm and its impact across the region, including rain and snow maps.
