NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — A nor’easter threatens to hamper travel throughout the Tri-State area for the start of the Thanksgiving holiday, and could also put a damper on the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
As CBS 2’s Lonnie Quinn reported, the storm was making its way into the Tennessee Valley on Monday, and was on track to move right into the Tri-State Area. A cloudy start was expected on Tuesday, and the brunt of the storm was expected to hit from Tuesday night through Wednesday afternoon, Quinn reported.
The storm will not bring snow, but will dump heavy rain on the area in amounts of 2 to 4 inches as winds gust up to 60 mph. Flooding is a risk for the area, Quinn reported. Some snow may come as the storm ends and temperatures drop dramatically on Thanksgiving Day.
A high wind watch has been issued for all five boroughs of the city, as well as the shoreline of Connecticut and the entirety of Long Island.
