What to Know

  • Another round of poweful storms move in late Friday night, Storm Team 4 says
  • Saturday starts off gusty and wet, but dries out in the afternoon, setting the stage for a pleasantly cool and sunny Sunday for the marathon
  • More showers are expected to start the new workweek on Monday

The tri-state area was at risk for torrential rain and wind gusts up to 50 mph early on Saturday, Storm Team 4 said, and flood warnings were issued across parts of New Jersey and Connecticut.

Pop-up thunderstorms began moving through on Friday evening; conditions deteriorateed overnight as a strong frontal system moves through, blasting the region with gusty winds and heavy run through the early morning hours on Saturday, Storm Team 4 says. Tornado warnings were in effect in some areas, as well. 

Some spots saw torrential rain. Most places should see a widespread 1 to 2 inches of rain before showers move out later Saturday morning. The National Weather Service issued flood warnings for parts of northern New Jersey, the Hudson Valley and southern Connecticut. 

The rain is expected to taper off and clouds may begin breaking up by Saturday afternoon, though winds will keep whipping. Click here for all severe weather alerts for your neighborhood. 

The mercury should fall back into more seasonable temperatures Saturday, then slide back into the 30s and 40s overnight ahead of Sunday's marathon. Seasonably cool — highs in the mid 50s — and bright weather is expected for the big race.
