Weather Summary for the Local Tri-State Region
National Weather Service New York NY
330 PM EDT Sun Apr 15 2018

The chances for rain will increase tonight as a cold front
approaches from the west, with a steady rain moving in for the
entire tri-state before midnight. The rain will continue
overnight, becoming moderate to heavy at times towards daybreak.
Lows will be in the middle 30s to around 40, with temperatures
rising overnight. Additionally, minor to locally moderate coastal
flooding may be a concern for portions of New York City, Long
Island, Northeast New Jersey, southern Westchester, and coastal
southwestern Connecticut. Finally, winds will continue to be
strong, with gusts around 40 mph possible along the coast.

Rain, heavy at times, will continue Monday morning, especially
during rush hour. There may even be an isolated thunderstorm. The
rain will begin to taper off from southwest to northeast during
the afternoon as drier air works into the area. Mainly dry
conditions return late Monday night. Between 1.50" and 2.50" of
rain is forecast through Monday night. This may cause some urban
and poor drainage flooding as well as allow some rivers to
approach and possibly exceed bankfull. Coastal flooding will once
again be a concern for the previously mentioned areas during the
morning into the afternoon hours. Winds will continue to be
strong, but should slowly diminish during the morning.

Tuesday will feature continued unsettled conditions as an upper
level system moves through, however, much of the area should
remain dry, with best chances for rain for areas north and west of
the metro area.
