What to Know

  • The umbrellas will be needed again on Wednesday, although it will be much milder, according to Storm Team 4
  • High wind warnings are in effect for more than a dozen tri-state counties; a severe thunderstorm warning was issued for several NJ counties
  • It's the third weather system in three days to pound the region with some sort of precipitation; on Monday, it was heavy snow

First snow, then showers -- and now thunderstorms. Plus a whole lot of wind. 

High wind warnings were in effect for more than a dozen tri-state counties, with the rest of the region under wind advisories Wednesday afternoon, after yet another powerful storm system pushed through the region, Storm Team 4 says.

Latest Timeline, Expectations for Wednesday's Storm Threat

The weather system, the third in as many days to pound the tri-state area with heavy precipitation, brought raging downpours along with frequent lightning and gusts up to 60 mph throughout the day. The National Weather Service says a half to three-quarters inch of rain was possible for much of the tri-state, with the strongest winds expected Wednesday afternoon through the evening.

Thursday will be drier, but highs will only reach the mid to high 40s.

It warms up again on Friday to end the workweek, but Storm Team 4 says it comes with a chance of wintry mix -- again -- that may change over to rain, mainly north and west of the city. Snow showers are possible again Saturday.
