The next storm to hit New York City is coming up: Expect heavy rain and strong winds tomorrow, just days after a powerful nor’easter blasted the region with a messy wintry mix and snow.
This time around, don’t even think about snow: Temperatures will remain in the high 40s, way too warm for any accumulation.
Instead, this system threatens NYC and the suburbs with the possibility of flash flooding and storm damage.
Rain will overspread the mid-Atlantic and Northeast tomorrow and into the evening, quickly becoming heavy at times, prompting NOAA’s Weather Prediction Center to issue a Level 3 out of 4 risk for flooding in parts of the region. The National Weather Service said the flood watch will remain in effect from Tuesday evening through Wednesday morning.
Widespread rainfall totals between 2 and 3 inches are expected across the region before the rain pushes off the East Coast. This includes New York City.
Locally higher amounts upwards of 4 to 5 inches are possible in parts of northern New Jersey and the lower Hudson Valley.
The rain will fall between 7 p.m. tomorrow and 5 a.m. Wednesday.
