The clouds will stick around all day on Tuesday; fortunately, any shower actively associated with the approaching warm front remained well west of the city in Pennsylvania. Wednesday will feature more of the same, however there could be a slightly better chance of a few isolated showers around. Late at night, the remnants of Tropical Storm Fred will potentially bring heavy downpours into the tri-state region. Flash Flood Watches have been issued for areas well west of the city as the risk of heavy downpours will be more widespread.
Much of Tuesday night should remain dry for the vast majority. Only areas well west of the city may see the risk of a shower. Otherwise, it will remain cloudy with temperatures in the lower 70s.
Wednesday starts out with more clouds once again. The risk of a shower is possible especially for areas well north and west of the city. There could be a few breaks in the clouds allowing temperatures to once again, top out in the lower 80s.
Late in the evening, the remnants of Tropical Storm Fred will approach the region. While much of the action will track well inland, the city may get several rounds of heavy downpours through the night and into early Thursday morning. As much as an inch or two of rain is possible, while areas well north and west of the city could see 2 to 4 inches of rain.
The storm may be slow to exit the region on Thursday keeping the risk of showers around into the afternoon. Temperatures will be at around the lower 80s.
Friday looks to end up being a very warm and humid day. Temperatures will climb into the upper 80s during the afternoon. A weak disturbance following behind the remnants of Fred could bring the risk of an isolated shower or thunderstorm.
For now, the weekend is looking OK. A stray storm cannot be ruled out on Saturday. On Sunday, the threat will lessen leaving us with mostly sunny skies. Temperatures will be in the mid to lower 80s.
