NEW YORK (PIX11) — A winter storm that brought snow to parts of the tri-state area Sunday evening had turned to rain for much of the New York City area, Long Island and New Jersey by early Monday morning. But we’re not in the clear just yet.
There were still concerns over flooding and strong winds — with gusts up to 30 mph — as the storm headed north.
PIX11’s Anthony DiLorenzo was live in Long Beach, Long Island with the latest on the storm:
A coastal flood warning was in effect for the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island, as well as low-lying areas of Westchester, Nassau and Suffolk counties.
In New Jersey, Monmouth and Middlesex counties were under a coastal flood warning through Monday afternoon. A wind advisory was also in place for Monmouth County.
NYC Sanitation Commissioner Edward Grayson spoke with the PIX11 Morning News about the city’s storm preparations, trash pickup, and how his crews were planning for possible flooding:
The rain tapered off for most of the area by mid-morning. There’s a slight chance for a spot shower or even some flurries through about 4 p.m.
It will stay mostly cloudy for the rest of the day, with temperatures topping out around 38 degrees. Sustained winds near 20 mph will remain a potential concern, with possible gusts of up to 35 mph.
PIX11’s Katie Corrado was live in Yonkers with the latest conditions in Westchester early Monday:
The clouds will gradually clear overnight and Tuesday was expected to be breezy and sunny with a high near 35 degrees. However, the wind chill will make it feel more like 15 to 20 degrees.
