NEW YORK — A wet Sunday is in store for those across the tri-state, as PIX11 meteorologist Stacy-Ann Gooden says we can expect 1 to 2 inches of rain in some areas.

Expect showers Sunday morning, with heavy downpours coming into early afternoon. Luckily, the rain should taper off in the evening, giving way to a dry Monday morning commute, Gooden said.

Coastal flood advisories went into effect Sunday morning for Long Island, as well as parts of Queens, the Bronx, Staten Island and Westchester County, according to the National Weather Service.

Most of those advisories should expire Sunday afternoon, or evening at the latest.

These heavy showers are remnants from recent tropical cyclone Olga — which made landfall in Louisiana Friday night — and now bring heavy rain and possible flooding to the tri-state area before the new week.

As the storm moves east, expect gusty winds Sunday into Monday. Highs are expected to top out in the 60s through mid-week, with a cool down by next weekend.
