NEW YORK (WCBS 880) -- The remnants of Tropical Storm Zeta will combine with a cold front to bring rain, wind and unseasonably cold weather to the Tri-State on Thursday and Friday.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo warned New Yorkers to expect “cold rain, wind and snow across much of the state.” He said travelers should be cautious on roadways and that state emergency response assets are prepared to help where needed.
Rain that started moving into the region on Thursday morning will continue into midday Friday.
Most of the Tri-State, including NYC, could see 1 to 3 inches of rain, while up to 4 inches of rain is possible in South Jersey. Flooding is a risk on roadways and in areas of poor drainage.
Chilly rain, some of it heavy, will continue throughout the day Thursday. Temperatures will fall to near 50 during the day, while lows will be in the 40s Thursday night.
Wind gusts could top 30 mph starting Thursday and continuing into Friday. The city Department of Buildings warned builders, contractors, crane operators and property owners to secure their construction sites, buildings and equipment.
It will be breezy and colder on Friday with rain through midday. Rain may mix with wet snow in the northwest New Jersey and Hudson Valley suburbs.
It will be mostly cloudy by Friday afternoon. Temperatures will stay in the low 40s with wind chills near 30.
