Today we’re expecting sct’d showers, humid conditions and highs in the upper 70s. Then we’ll have to keep an eye on a slow moving front that will work its way through our area this afternoon — and mainly late this afternoon into the evening in the city — into Friday morning. Periods of heavy rainfall is expected with the heaviest rainfall around/west/N&W of the city. That said, a flash flood watch will go into effect later today for much of the area at 4PM (11 AM far west/southwest) and remain in effect until 8 AM tomorrow.

Showers exit the city tomorrow morning and gradually push east the remainder of the day… a strong or even severe t’storm can’t be ruled out across Long Island. It will be cooler and less humid, too, with highs in the low 70s.
