A line of strong storms bringing gusty winds, hail and torrential downpours pummeled the tri-state area Wednesday, causing hours-long airport delays and prompting flash flood warnings in Northern Manhattan.
Most of the shower and storm activity will settle down heading into the evening, but it will remain muggy and murky with areas of patchy fog possibly developing overnight, NBC Storm Team 4 says.
The rest of the workweek will continue to feature hot, humid and stormy weather. Another round of showers and storms is forecast for both Thursday and Friday, and more flash flooding is possible in the afternoon on those days. There’ll be a good mix of sun and clouds the rest of the day, with highs climbing back into the mid 80s.
Forecasters say there’s a better chance for widespread showers and thunderstorms late Friday night into Saturday as a cold front approaches the tri-state area. Even though Saturday looks to start off a bit soggy, conditions will improve by the end of the weekend with highs in the low 80s and plenty of sunshine returning on Sunday.
