October has gotten off to a hotter-than-average start, and Tuesday wont be much different, but Storm Team 4 says some powerful storms could start to fire up during the evening commute.
Tuesday morning starts off steamy and sticky, with lots of clouds, but severe storms packing the possibility of damaging winds, small hail, heavy rain and lightning, will begin to pop up any time after 4 p.m., Storm Team 4 says. Spots to the north and west of the city are most at risk earlier in the afternoon.
The cold front will continue to move through the tri-state during the evening, bringing the storms closer to the city around dinner or later. Long Island might not see wet weather until after 10 p.m., Storm Team 4 says.
By midnight, the rain is expected to move out. The heat, however, is here to stay for a few more days. The sunshine will make a comeback on Wednesday with temperatures reaching the 80s, with another warm forecast for Thursday.
A brief cooldown will come Saturday with temps in the 60s, but then the mercury is expected to shoot back into the upper 70s and low 80s and stay that way through the middle of next week.
