The weather is expected to be unstable Wednesday and lasting through the beginning of the day on Thursday, Storm Team 4 says.
The next day or so will feature plenty of clouds as well as rounds of scattered showers and thunderstorms.
There were thunderstorm warnings in effect for some parts of the tri-state Tuesday and a small craft advisory remains in effect along the Jersey Shore and parts of Long Island until 6 p.m. Wednesday. Get the latest weather alerts here.
Swells from a powerful Hurricane Irma will likely maintain a high risk of rip currents into the weekend, Storm Team 4 said.
As the rain began to fall Wednesday, it started to wreck havoc for some commuters on NJ Transit's RiverLINE. The line was suspended for a brief time in both directions from Walter Rand Transportation Center and Waterfront Entertainment Complex during the morning rush due to flooding.
Wednesday will continue to see more clouds and scattered showers, but things are expected to brighten up by Thursday afternoon, meteorologists say. It will dry up and the skies will clear once high pressure builds back in.
The rest of the workweek will feature cooler temperatures with highs in the lower to mid-70s, but conditions look perfect for an almost fall weekend.
