Overnight storms knocked down trees in New York City, but the rain moved out ahead of a windy and chilly Saturday.

A large tree near the southeastern corner of Central Park split in two and fell on a car parked on Fifth Avenue. Another tree fell and damaged power lines in Jamaica, Queens. 

Saturday will see partly sunny skies, with wind gusts reaching 40 mph at times, Storm Team 4 said. Temperatures on Saturday will feel chilly with highs only in the mid to upper 50s. 

The weekend is expected to stay dry with the next chance of rain Monday night into Tuesday morning, Storm Team 4 says. 

Friday saw heavy rain, some lightning and hail in a few places as a storm system moved through the region.
