Storm Watch Team Meteorologist Darryl Green says downpours are expected for Wednesday morning. The downpours could cause widespread flooding across the region. A total of 1 inch of rain is expected - though more is possible. Stormy weather is expected as early as 6 a.m.
A flood watch is now active through Wednesday afternoon for the Bronx and Brooklyn.

TRACKING LEE

We continue to monitor Lee’s track for changes and potential impacts. The storm still looks well offshore with no major direct impact. Coastal impacts are possible - including rip currents and possible beach erosion.
Hurricane Lee is expected to track just west of Bermuda as a Category 1 hurricane. The storm is expected to weaken as it continues to track north toward Canada. The storm is headed for Nova Scotia or New Brunswick, Canada. This is where it would make any landfall. Impacts to those areas would not be any different than a strong nor’easter - just without the snow. The storm is not predicted to come to New York City, and all impacts to the tri-state area are indirect.
Tonight: Increasing clouds, rain by morning. Lows from the mid- to upper-60s.
Wednesday: Periods of heavy rain and possible thunderstorms. Highs around the mid-70s.
Thursday: Mostly sunny. Highs around the mid-70s.
Friday: Sun and clouds, breezy. Highs from the low- to mid-70s.
Saturday: Partly sunny and breezy. Highs around the mid- to upper-70s.
Sunday: Sun and clouds. Highs from the mid- to upper-70s.
