The tri-state endured another day of rain and chilly temperatures Tuesday as the wet weather system that stalled over the region Sunday and Monday hung around.
Temperatures lingered in the mid 50s -- nearly 20 degrees below average highs -- as off-and-on showers dogged the region. Flash flood warnings were canceled for the area, but drizzly conditions still made for plenty of puddles at crosswalks.
The wet weather finally started to clear out of the region Tuesday night, with skies clearing from north to south.
The weather system will leave behind partly cloudy skies and comfortable high temperatures near 70 degrees on Wednesday, but the region won't have long to wring out.
Storm Team 4 says that more rain returns Thursday amid cooler temperatures. It could also be rainy in spots on Friday and Saturday, albeit warmer, with temperatures in the upper 70s.
Sunshine will again return on Sunday, Storm Team 4 says. Monday could be another wet one, with scattered thunderstorms passing through in the afternoon and evening.
The unsettled weather comes after storms the past two days flooded streets, stranded drivers and sent fish from waterlogged ponds into the streets and sewers. As many as 10,000 homes and businesses lost power.
The storms wreaked havoc on travel, causing hundreds of delays at the region's airports and causing several car crashes, including one on the New Jersey Turnpike involving Giants punter Steve Weatherford. Weatherford was not injured, but he said his rental car was "totaled."
