    What to Know

    • Hurricane Michael strengthened into an extremely dangerous Category 4 storm and made landfall in Florida on Wednesday

    • The remnants of the storm battered parts of the tri-state with two rounds of heavy rain and triggered flash flood warnings and watches

    • The rain moves out early Friday, leading to a bright, but cool day and staying that way through the weekend

    The remnants of Hurricane Matthew, the deadly Category 4 storm that slammed into the Florida Panhandle on Wednesday, and has brought pockets of heavy rain to parts of the tri-state, sparking flood warnings and watches, Storm Team 4 says.

    A flash flood warning has been issued for Monmouth and Ocean counties on the Jersey Shore, with flood watches in effect for all of Long Island. Click here for severe weather for your neighborhood. 

    The first patch of the heaviest rain began to push in in late Thursday evening and then another round pounded its way into the region after midnight Friday morning, forecasters said.

    The remnants of Hurricane Michael will continue move up the coast, but the bulk of the energy is still forecast to remain offshore, including the strong winds. See the hour-by-hour outlook below.

    Still, the storm will be close enough to add extra rainfall to totals in the tri-state, with a widespread 2 to 3 inches falling throughout the area. Some spots could get more than 3 inches of rain, with the highest likelihood of higher amounts along the shoreline and on Long Island.
