    What to Know

    • Storm Team 4 says the tri-state may get 1 to 3 inches of rain over a several-day stretch that may feature 30 to 40 mph winds

    • Saturday starts off nice, before high pressure pushes out and low pressure moves in, bringing the threat of rain, storms every day next week

    • The weather doesn't look to improve until the following Saturday; Storm Team 4 says to keep the umbrellas handy all week

    That picture-perfect summer weather may be over for a while. 

    After another gorgeous, sunny morning, rain and storms started to move in Saturday night. 

    Storm Team 4 said the rain would approach around sunset and bring about 1 to 1 1/2 inches by Sunday morning. Thunderstorms are also expected and could bring more rain in some spots. 

    Winds with gusts up to 40 mph are likely, with stronger winds at the coasts.

    The weather could bring coastal flooding to the Jersey Shore and Staten Island, as well as street flooding inland. 

    ConEdison warned against touching any downed power lines because they might be live. The utility asked residents to report downed wires immediately.

    Sunday afternoon could see showers, as well as a thunderstorm, according to meteorologist Erica Grow.  

    The 10-day forecast shows rain every day after that until next Saturday.
