Areas of Dense Fog followed by Heavy Rain

Our next coastal low will track NE into the region this afternoon and overnight, our ahead of it we have cloudy skies and areas of dense fog. Weather will start to go down hill by later this afternoon with period of heavy rain overnight.

Tracking the rain- areas of showers break out between noon and 2pm, widespread moderate rain overtakes the entire region between 5-7pm. Rain becomes heavy at times between 7pm and 2am, heavy rain continues to track north overnight with waves of heavy rainfall pushing into the region from the south. Steady rainfall lingers into the morning Thursday before ending between 8-10am, with only scattered showers through noontime, especially NE parts of the region.

Here’s a look at the simulated radar for overnight, showing widespread moderate to heavy rainfall across the region.

All set and done rainfall amounts of 1-3” will be likely with the highest amounts across the southern facing slopes of higher terrain.  Flood watches remain in effect for Westchester, Rockland and Putnam counties where 2”+ of rainfall is most likely to occur. Everyone stay dry, careful driving this morning with the dense fog.
