Wet weather is making for a messy commute throughout the tri-state this morning as scattered showers and locally heavy thunderstorms move through the area.
A few of these thunderstorms will put down a quick inch or two of rain, with possible localized flooding across portions of western New Jersey, New York City and Long Island in poor drainage spots.
The afternoon rain won’t be as heavy, and a high of 69 is forecast for the day.
The rain is welcome in many places; Central Park and Newark, N.J. are about 9 to 10 inches below on rainfall this year.
The weekend looks dry with sun, clouds and temperatures in the 60s.
The area will see 70s again next week.
