Most of Tri-State Under Flood Watch as Tropical Storm Bill Approaches

A flood watch went into effect Saturday evening for the tri-state region as the remnants of Tropical Storm Bill were expected to deliver a dose of heavy rain.

Thunderstorms and flooding in New Jersey, New York City and surrounding counties were expected after midnight and into Sunday morning, Storm Team 4 says.

Mostly cloudy conditions on Saturday kept temperatures in the low-to-mid 70s, which is well below the norm for this time of year.

Heavy rain will continue on Sunday morning, forcing outdoor Father's Day plans to be move indoors, Storm Team 4 says. Thunderstorms are also likely in the morning, and a brief thunderstorm is possible in the afternoon or evening.

Things will dry off in the mid-to-late afternoon Sunday and temperatures will rise to the low 80s.

Monday will be hot, sunny and a little muggy as temperatures move into the mid 80s. Tuesday will be even hotter, with temperatures in the upper 80s. There could be a stray understorm Tuesday afternoon.

Wednesday, Thursday and Friday will see temperatures in the high 70s to low 80s. It will be partly cloudy on Wednesday, but scattered thunderstorms could bring rain and lightning to some parts of our area on Thursday and Friday.
