    Your Forecast for Tuesday, April 5

    Here's your rainy Tuesday forecast. (Published Tuesday, April 5, 2011)

    Rain squalls blew across New Jersey Tuesday as New Yorkers braced for scattered thunderstorms forecast throughout the day.      

    The storms, packing strong winds and heavy rain, darkened the morning sky in the Garden State. There are no reports of severe damage or injuries.      

    The National Weather Service has canceled a severe thunderstorm watch for most of the state that was scheduled to end at 10 a.m.

    In New York, early clear skies gave way to scattered downpours by the morning rush. Rain is forecast to continue on and off throughout the day until about 6 p.m. Temperatures are expected to reach the high 50s before dropping to the high 30s overnight. 

    The sun is forecast to come out at least a little bit on Wednesday, making temperatures feel warmer than the predicted highs in the mid 50s. Enjoy the day, though, because a chance of showers returns to the forecast on Thursday and linger through the weekend.
