This afternoon, additional flash flooding is likely as heavy downpours continue, especially North of the city. Heading into the early evening, t-storms are possible. Rain will transition to showers after 8pm as a warm front pushes North. There will be a lingering chance for heavy rainfall for Long Island, but generally light rain showers are expected overnight. Patchy fog is possible late. Temperatures will stay mild, settling into the upper 60s and low 70s.

A cold front will approach on Wednesday, continuing the chance for showers. There will be a chance for strong thunderstorms in the late afternoon and early evening, with the main threat being damaging winds and heavy rainfall.

The front swings through late tomorrow, and cooler, drier air will help break up the clouds a bit more, as well as bring temperatures back down in the low 70s again by the end of the week.

TONIGHT: Breezy with a few isolated showers or thunderstorms. LOW: 70

TOMORROW: Breezy and muggy with showers and thunderstorms. A few severe PM t-storms possible. HIGH: 81

Southwesterly flow will continue to crank up the heat and humidity a notch higher again today. Highs will climb back up into the lower 90s, yet it will feel much more like it is near or above 100 degrees at times. Showers and thunderstorms generated by a strong cold front will move into the region during the afternoon and evening, where a few severe storms could develop. Potential impacts brought on by some of these nasty storms mainly include damaging winds, heavy downpours, and localized flooding. Most of the thunderstorms will rumble on through this evening, but conditions should begin to settle down around midnight. Still, scattered showers will continue to dampen parts of the area overnight, with lows settling in the 60s and 70s. Thankfully, the dangerous heat and humidity will break once cooler air begins to move into the area behind the front tomorrow. Temperatures will steadily stay in the mid to upper 70s throughout the day, but since this front will stall just to our south and east, most of the region could expect to see plenty of clouds, in addition to a few spotty showers.
