(PIX11 Weather Center) –– A warm front will slowly approach the Tri-State area Wednesday, bringing heavy rains and raw temperatures that will make it feel more like March than nearly May.
A Flood Watch is in effect through Thursday morning for much of the Tri-State area as the storm is expected to dump 2 to 4 inches of rain on much of the area. Temperatures will be well below seasonable Wednesday, reaching the low 50s with mid-50s for the southern suburbs.
Rain will continue into Wednesday night with scattered thunderstorms possible. Temperatures will remain steady in the low 50s for the city, mid 50s for the suburbs.
Thursday will feature periods of rain with thunderstorms and milder temperatures, highs will be near 70 degrees for the city, mid-70s for the southern suburbs.
Skies will clear out on Friday as high pressure gradually moves in from the west and the storm moves offshore. High temperatures will be in the upper-60s for the city, near 70 degrees for the suburbs.
Scattered showers will pass through the Tri-State once again on Saturday as a weak front will move through the area followed by clearing skies for Sunday.
