Heavy Rain Flash Flooding Thunderstorms
Better Weekend Ahead Into Christmas
FLash Flood Warnings are posted this morning for the areas in and around NYC. We also have numerous flood advisories and flood warnings posted across New Jersey, the Hudson Valley & Southern New England. More is headed north as the radars are loaded and we going to see some rather heavy downpours now into this afternoon. It appears that the heaviest rain is lining up along the immediate coast to about NYC and Western Long Island on the eastern flank to about the New Jersey Pennsylvania state line.
Rainfall amounts are going to finish up in the 2 to 3 inch range for many areas and expect some more flooding issues to develop in the usual suspect areas and in some areas that perhaps don’t normally flood out. Winds have been strong along the coast but they actually will ease into this afternoon before revving up again late today and tonight. Winds will shift to southwest and then west and become strong and gusty tonight.
The regional and local radars continue to show waves of rain and to the south of us we can see some very heavy rains heading northward. We also can see the back edge of the rain now moving out of Virginia and headed northeast.
LOCAL RADAR NEW YORK CITY
Weather conditions do improve over the weekend though it will still be rather windy on Saturday with a mix of sun and clouds. Temperatures will be in the low and mid 60s today. Temperatures Saturday will be dealing with leftover mild air so highs will be into the 50s before it turns colder Saturday night and Sunday.
Believe it or not we have an upper air disturbance swinging out of the Great Lakes Sunday that will bring a chance for some snow on the NAM at least for Sunday night into Monday. There isn’t much room for anything other than a weak system to move through and there could be another upper air disturbance moving through Monday night Christmas Eve. Otherwise it should be dry Sunday Monday and Tuesday Christmas Day with sunshine and seasonal temperatures.
