Rain Drenches Tri-State With Hours of Rain Expected Until Morning

Periods of heavy rain will make for a rather nasty evening rush, Storm Team 4 says

What to Know

  • Rough weather is expected during Tuesday's PM rush, when periods of heavy rain and possible thunderstorms could make conditions ugly
  • The better part of the area will see nearly a half inch to an inch of rain by the time showers move out overnight
  • The weather improves later in the week, with sunshine returning and highs in the mid 60s Wednesday and Thursday

The tri-state was left water-logged after an hours long storm slowly made it's way through the region, and it's not expected to fully move out until Wednesday morning, Storm Team 4 says.

After a damp and cloudy start to Tuesday, the skies opened up after 5 p.m. for some in the area, setting up a wet commute.

Rainfall was consistent throughout the night, though the tri-state was spared of any major thunderstorms. Temperatures on Tuesday were slightly higher than average, in the low 60s.

The precipitation was heavy at time for some, as stronger bands of rain came through. Most of the area get between half to a whole inch of rain by midnight, and the totals could keep going up as the storms move out.

The wet weather is expected to end sometime overnight, and while the ground will still be wet by the time for the morning rush, the rainfall should have concluded by sunrise.

Sunshine returns by Wednesday and should stick around through at least Thursday with temps in the mid 60s. The chance for more rain returns Friday.
