    Rain will dominate the weather this weekend and flood watches are in effect for much of the tri-state area until Sunday evening.

    The forecast calls for intermittent showers through Saturday that will turn into heavy, steady rain through the evening and overnight hours.

    Flood watches are in effect for the entire region with the exception of New York City, Long Island and New Jersey's Hudson, Monmouth and Ocean counties.

    Rainfall totals will range from around 1 to 3 inches, which could cause localized street and river flooding.

    The rain may linger into Monday morning.

    The weekend's highs in the upper 40s and low 50s are expected to give way to temps in the high 50s and low 60s by the middle of next week, which should be mostly sunny and mild.
