More rain is expected Monday, triggering flood warnings and watches for much of the tri-state, according to Storm Team 4. Check severe weather alerts for your neighborhood here.
The rain is expected to start in the late morning or early afternoon, forecasters said. New Jersey was bracing for heavy rain starting after 10 a.m. Monday. The Public Safety Director was warning residents that streets could flood, and was asking motorists to avoid more than a dozen streets at risk of flooding.
Conditions are due to worsen throughout the afternoon and showers become heavier and steadier leading into the evening.
NYC is expected to get about an inch of rain. But combined with the tide, that could cause minor flooding of shore roads and areas in Manhattan, Staten Island, Queens and the Bronx, the National Weather Service said. Widespread flooding will be a concern for any low-lying areas, and poor drainage spots during the PM commute for many.
It could be the late evening before the last of the rain moves out of Long Island and Connecticut, Storm Team 4 says.
The sun returns again on Tuesday and so far the forecast looks clear on Wednesday for the Rockefeller Christmas tree lighting.
