    Storm Team 4 meteorologist Janice Huff has your forecast for Wednesday, Oct. 3. (Published Tuesday, Oct. 2, 2018)

    A powerful storm hit the tri-state Tuesday, bringing damaging winds, small hail, heavy rain and lightning as tornado warnings and watches popped up into the night across the area. 

    There were widespread reports of flooding and falling trees amid pouring rains in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. The storms started roaring north and west of the city around 2:30 p.m., and began making their way through the city and Long Island later Tuesday night. 

    Storm reports indicate trees down in Stony Point in Rockland County, Mount Kisco in Westchester, flooding in Wanaque in Passaic County and even reports of garage flooding in Bergen County. 

    In Connecticut, trees were reported down on the Merritt Parkway in New Canaan and part of Route 15 was also shut down for downed tress in both directions.

    A tornado warning that was issued in Dutchess County Tuesday afternoon expired at 3 p.m.; severe thunderstorm warnings there and in Ulster County remained in place until 3:15 p.m. Tornado watches were in effect for Sullivan County, New Jersey, and Pike County, Pennsylvania, until 11 p.m. Check the latest weather alerts here. 

    The National Weather Service said it will conduct a storm survey in Rockland, Westchester counties in New York as well as Fairfield County in Connecticut. The findings will be released by Wednesday afternoon. 

    By midnight, the rain was pushing out of the five boroughs, but some severe weather was still lingering over parts of Long Island, especially Suffolk County. All the storms are expected to move out by early Wednesday.

    The heat, however, is here to stay for a few more days. The sunshine will make a comeback on Wednesday with temperatures reaching the upper 70s, shooting back into the low 80s on Thursday.
