NEW YORK — Hazardous weather, including a chance of severe storms, damaging winds and flooding, is expected in parts of NYC and New Jersey Friday.
Heavy downpours could hit the five boroughs and parts of New Jersey throughout the day. Rain is likely to occur on-and-off, with a brief break expected around lunch time.

Rain could linger into Saturday, but the wet weather and humidity should be leave the area by Sunday, when clear skies are expected.
