Soaker Rolls in on Tri-State Just in Time for Morning Commute

What to Know

  • The Thursday morning commute will be a soggy one as showers roll in overnight, Storm Team 4 says
  • Friday afternoon into Saturday is the best part of the upcoming holiday weekend, meteorologists say
  • There's a high risk for more unsettled weather for the start of next week, but the second half of the work week will be warm and quiet

Get those umbrellas and rain boots out, a soaker is sitting above the tri-state area, just in time for the Thursday morning commute, Storm Team 4 says.

Clouds gathered through the night and rain began to break out after 3 a.m., according to meteorologists. It will pick up throughout the morning and will come down at a steady rate, before it tapers off midday. Some scattered showers will linger in the afternoon along with possible cracks of thunder at night.

There is the possibility for some minor to moderate coastal flooding during the evening commute from around 6 p.m. to midnight, Storm Team 4 said.

Friday afternoon into Saturday is the best part of the upcoming holiday weekend, according to Storm Team 4. Sunday will start nice, but clouds will quickly roll in during the second half of the day. Showers and thunderstorms are likely Sunday evening into Memorial Day morning.

The holiday won’t be a washout, however, some showers may linger into the early afternoon, especially along the coast.

The risk of more unsettled weather is high for the start of next week, but the second half of the work week will bring warmer and quieter weather.
