MIDTOWN — Winds gusting up to 45 mph will lash the city throughout the day Monday after a weekend storm dumped about 3 inches of rain on the five boroughs, officials said.
The fast-moving, low-pressure system soaked Central Park on Sunday, forecasters said. Those showers should linger through rush hour Monday, forecasters said.
Central Park is expected to get hit with another .17 inches of rain until about 10 a.m. Monday, the National Weather Service said.
“It’s a 'nature coastal storm' that developed along the Mid-Atlantic Coast,” said NWS spokesman David Stark. “It’s going to continue moving north into southern Canada. We’re left with the residual moisture.”
A wind advisory is in effect across the city until 2 p.m. as gusts are expected to top 45 miles per hour, the NWS said.
The National Weather Service is advising New Yorkers to be on the lookout for flying debris and to charge cell phones in advance.
More than 200 Con-Ed users across the boroughs woke up without power to begin the work week, with 174 of those households in Queens. The power company said service likely wouldn't be restored until Monday afternoon.
Public School JHS 189 in Flushing has been re-located to P.S. 22, at 153-33 Sanford Ave., for the day. Dismissal location is pending, according to Notify NYC.
The high Monday is expected to reach 56 degrees, about average for Oct. 30 in the city, officials said.
Clouds are expected to mostly move out of the area by the early afternoon to make for a clear evening, the NWS said.
Tuesday is expected to be sunny with a high of 56 degrees.
