High rip current risk is in effect through this evening for life-threatening rip currents at all ocean facing in Brooklyn and Queens.
A few hit or miss showers/thunderstorms are expected to arrive Thursday morning with an isolated threat during the afternoon.
NEXT: A slow-moving cold front will bring drenching rain to the boroughs Friday into Saturday afternoon. This front will tap into some of Beryl's tropical airmass and a southerly warm airmass to fuel these storms. Up to 1 inch of rainfall possible, with locally higher amounts with any downpours. There is a risk of street flooding/localized flooding across the city through Saturday.
The relentless heat and nasty humidity hang around into the weekend. Heat wave #3 likely next week, starting on Sunday through the midweek.
TONIGHT: A chance for a couple of passing t-storms between midnight and 5AM. Lows near 78, feeling like 80s.
TOMORROW: Any leftover t-storm clears by the heart of the morning commute. Then clouds to sun, hot and humid, but not as tropical as the last few days. Highs approach 90 again, but feeling like 95 instead of 100. Lows down to 76.
FRIDAY: Scattered tropical storms possible. The best chance for storms will be mid-late morning, with a break in the afternoon, and more scattered storms after sundown. Highs near 83. Lows near 75.
SATURDAY – POSSIBLE STORM WATCH: This slow-moving storm will likely continue pumping tropical moisture and bring more tropical downpours, more widespread, during the first half of the day. The worst impacts are, at this point, most likely Saturday morning. Then quick clearing late. Highs near 87. Lows near 76.
SUNDAY: Who's ready for heat wave #3? It begins Sunday with highs up to 93, feeling like 95-100. Lows near 79.
EARLY NEXT WEEK: It might feel even hotter than this current heat wave. Highs around 95, feeling like 100+. Lows near 80.
