NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The first nor’easter of the fall season will plow its way into the Tri-State Area Thursday morning, and is expected to affect the morning commute and stick around all day.

CBS 2’s Lonnie Quinn reported as of late Wednesday, a train of moisture was bringing rain down. The rain will move into the area in the early morning hours Thursday.

Heavy rain was expected in spots south of the New York City as early as 6:30 a.m., but breakaway storms could hit the city and areas to the north.

Heavier rain was expected to pull in farther north and east toward Long Island by 2 p.m.

The rain will push out, but is expected to push back in around 7:30 p.m. Thursday. Models late Wednesday showed the heaviest rain hovering directly over the five boroughs of New York City at that time – in what could be a threat to Derek Jeter’s last game with the Yankees.

Major League Baseball will make the final call if weather interferes. A representative said that “all efforts will be made to get the game in tomorrow.”

“Hopefully the weather cooperates, and we try to come out and win a game,” Jeter said Wednesday night.

The rainfall is expected to total 1.5 inches in the city; 1.9 inches in Coram, Long Island; 1.4 inches in Brick, New Jersey; and 1.7 inches in Montauk, Long Island.

A coastal flood advisory has also been issued for shoreline counties in New Jersey, and all surfside beaches in the area could see waves between 4 and 9 feet, and seas rising to 11 feet – along with possible rip currents.

The temperature on Thursday will only rise to 64 degrees, with a raw and bone-chilling feel in the air through the day.
