After a 16-day dry stretch, much-needed rain finally soaked the tri-state area Thursday — and some of that rain mixed with snow to closed out the workweek.
Most of the precipitation moved out of the tri-state by Friday morning and threats of snow and rain were replaced with strong winds. Wind gusts of up to 30 mph could make the low temperatures feel even colder, but sunshine will return by afternoon, Storm Team 4 says. Wind Advisory remains in effect until 1 p.m. along the Jersey Shore.
Then the good stuff moves in. The weekend is expected to feature sunny skies and temperatures in the mid 50s. The mercury gets another boost, possibly topping 60 degrees, on Monday before some clouds and showers roll in after midweek. Temperatures will stay in the upper 50s despite the cloud cover, and the sun returns by the end of next week for another sunny weekend.
Some more rain showers are forecasted for next week, a week after rain marked the first precipitation for New York City since March 1, ending the city's longest stretch without it since 2017.
