Rain continues today, Saturday 9/23, with periods of moderate to heavy rain and nuisance flooding possible. A lull is expected this evening, with another round of heavy rain forecast late tonight into mid-day tomorrow, Sunday 9/24. Nuisance flooding will again be possible, and isolated areas of flash flooding cannot be ruled out. Light to moderate showers are likely to linger into Monday 9/25, with dry conditions anticipated by Monday night.
Gusty winds continue this afternoon and tomorrow, with peak gusts around 30 mph along the coast. Winds will gradually diminish Sunday night into Monday, but will remain breezy into Tuesday with gusts around 25 mph.
Predicted coastal flood inundation levels have been lowered slightly since yesterday. Minor high tidal flooding with up to 1 foot of above-ground inundation is possible along vulnerable shorelines, particularly Jamaica Bay. Isolated minor coastal flooding may continue into early next week. A high risk of rip currents, large breaking waves, rough surf, and beach erosion is also expected to continue through tomorrow night.
