Storms are expected to continue intermittently in the tri-state area through Tuesday night. The threat of severe weather is well to the west of the region, but parts of inland New Jersey could see severe storms later in the afternoon and evening.
However, local heavy downpours and gusty winds are possible across a wide swath of the three states.
The cloudiness persists on Wednesday, although the rain will have receded except for a few passing showers. Expect temperatures above 90 degrees.
The weather cools back down to the 80s on Wednesday and should stay there for the first part of next week, although Friday could bring some showers. It seems to be a perfect weekend though, so keep your grill tools close by.
