NEW YORK (PIX11) — The front that brought soaking rains overnight has moved east of the region after dropping 4 to 5 inches of rain in portions of the Tri-State area.
Numerous rivers and streams swelled from the storm and are expected to crest above flood stage later Thursday morning and into the afternoon.
Flood warnings are in effect for most of the counties in New Jersey as rivers will continue to crest throughout the day. Some are currently in moderate to major flood stage; however, they will begin to recede as the day goes on.
Expect scattered showers and thunderstorms throughout the afternoon with much milder temperatures. Highs will be 71 in the city, mid 70s for the suburbs.
Thursday night will be partly cloudy and mild with low temperatures in the mid-50s for the city, mid-40s for the suburbs.
The area will finally dry out on Friday as high pressure will bring sunshine back to the area. Temperatures will continue to be mild with highs in the upper 60s to near 70 degrees.
Saturday will see partly sunny skies with a chance of scattered showers, mainly toward evening. Temperatures will hover near the 70-degree mark.
And for Sunday, expect partly cloudy and seasonable weather with highs in the mid-60s.
