August 7, 2019

Nasty storms could slam us from Harlem To Hollis with rough winds, heavy rain and flooding Wednesday evening, forecasters warn.

All five boroughs will be under a severe thunderstorm watch until 9 p.m. as the nasty weather strikes, while parts of Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan and The Bronx are under a severe thunderstorm warning, the National Weather Service says. There’s also a flood advisory for the city in effect until 7 p.m.

Heavy showers are expected to start ahead of the evening rush hour and could drench Central Park with more than an inch of rain by early Tuesday morning, according to the weather service. As much as an inch of water had already fallen on parts of Staten Island as of about 4:40 p.m., the weather service said.

There’s also a possibility of damaging winds from the storms, which could affect parts of Connecticut, New Jersey and Long Island, the weather service says.

The city will see another chance of thunderstorms on Thursday, with rain most likely in the late afternoon, the weather service’s forecast shows.
