Showers and strong thunderstorms have been moving through the Hudson Valley and NJ into the NYC area. Some of the storms have become quite intense, producing vivid lightning, strong winds and local flooding. This will continue through the evening and early part of the night.

They may weaken a bit as they move towards LI and CT but keep in mind that your Saturday evening plans may be hampered for the next few hours.

There will be a lull in the activity later tonight. Sunday should be a decent day, at least part of the time. Expect some sunshine and very warm temperatures, reaching 80-85 in many areas. Can't rule out another shower or thunderstorm in parts of the region though, especially later in the day or evening.

A cold front drops down Sunday night and cools us down quite a bit for Monday. Expect a mix of clouds and sun with highs of 65-70.

The front returns as a warm front Tuesday and the daytime highs reach back into the 70s. Yet another threat of showers and thunderstorms late Tuesday as a new cold front approaches. Once that moves through, the rest of the week should be quiet and feeling like spring.
