After a sunny and brisk Easter, the beginning of the workweek was on the sloppy side, Storm Team 4 said.
Rain and fog that began overnight Sunday continued through the morning commute. Storm Team 4 says the steady rain will end sometime before lunch, but showers are possible throughout the afternoon, as are thunderstorms.
Later on in the afternoon, as the rain subsides and temperatures reach the low 60s, strong winds will pick up.
A wind advisory was in effect in Ulster, Dutchess, Putnam, Orange, Rockland, Westchester, Fairfield, Passaic, Bergen, Hudson, Essex, and Union counties, as well as the five New York City boroughs from 5 p.m. Monday to 6 p.m. Tuesday.
A wind advisory is issued when sustained winds of 31 to 39 mph or gusts of 46 to 57 mph are expected to occur.
Tuesday will be slightly cooler than Monday, but much drier, Storm Team 4 says.
Wednesday might be the nicest day of the week, when temps will be in the low 60s under sunny skies.
It will be nearly 70 degrees on Thursday, but there’s also a chance that showers will drench our area later in the day and evening, putting a damper on things.
The spring showers and storms are forecast to continue Friday before a dry, but cooler weekend.
