Weather forecasters said New York City will have heavy rain on Thursday and Friday but no major flooding is expected to hit the Big Apple.
Brian Thompson, senior meteorologist AccuWeather said the downpour will not be steady to bring floodings.
“With Ida it was just one huge band of rain that didn’t really move for any length of time, but we’re going to be cutting in and out of showers through the night,” Thompson said.
“We don’t expect any major flooding at this point,” Thomspon added.
Because of the forecast, a flash flood warning was in effect from 4 p.m. Thursday until 8 a.m. Friday.
Thompson said he expect the subways to be moving smoothly through the night, but water could pool up underground in areas that are briefly hit with heavy volumes of rain,
Thompson added that after the heavy rain New Yorkers should enjoy a sunny weekend with temperatures in the low to mid-70s.
