Due to the instability of the atmosphere, the National Weather Service had issued a Tornado Watch for this afternoon. There were no reports of tornadoes today, however law enforcement had detected a funnel cloud in Lake View, New Jersey. All other storm reports we received were damage associated with straight line winds. Rainfall amounts today were generally at around a .25 – .5.” around the city.  A few spots got over 1″ in New Jersey and in Upstate New York.

Weather

As of this evening, the rain is tapering off over Long Island and it should be dry for the rest of the night. Skies will clear out early in the morning and temperatures will fall into the 50s by daybreak.  High pressure is approaching the area and winds are shifting to the north. Because of this, highs will struggle to reach 70 in the afternoon, but it’ll be a sunny autumn day.

By Wednesday, high pressure will still be in control but temperatures will only top out in the upper 60s under mostly sunny skies.
