The National Weather Service says the winds should start to calm down as the storm leaves

Meteorologists said record rainfall from the moon this week poured out of Long Island on Wednesday and that the storm’s high winds were receding.

“Winds are currently peaking and will decrease slowly throughout the day,” the National Weather Service said shortly before 11 a.m. Wednesday.

Stormy conditions are the river’s last three-day hit, although wind speeds and precipitation amounts vary widely across the region.

In Suffolk, wind gusts measured Sunday morning came at 42 mph in Brookhaven all the way up to 73 mph at Stony Brook, the National Weather Service said.

Most places in Suffolk experienced wind gusts in the mid to high forties and fifties.

But the high wind warning for eastern Suffolk County and the wind warning for the rest of the island is over.

As of 2:30 PM, the power outage was negligible – PSEG reported only 310 with no power.

The Met Office said a coastal flood warning remained in effect until 7 p.m. Wednesday in eastern, southwestern and southern Nassau counties, as residents should prepare for flooding of up to one foot in low-lying areas.

The weather service said Wednesday night skies will gradually become clear and winds will decrease, although Thursday may have some scattered clouds.

According to the Meteorological Service, Wednesday’s highest peak should exceed 58 degrees, thanks to cloudy skies and cool northern winds.

After a clear night, the skies will turn clear and Thursday will provide some much-needed sunlight before the next batch of rain arrives from Friday to Saturday, meteorologists said.

Record rain

Although the area has apparently been spared the massive outages that affected Massachusetts, where about half a million customers lost power, the tri-region has seen a record amount of rain.

Tuesday was “the wettest day in Islip in over 10 years, since 2011 with Irene,” said Dominic Ramoney, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

The 4.47 inches of rainfall recorded at Islip was three times the previous 1981 record of 1.5 inches.

Meanwhile, 3.24 inches of rain fell at Kennedy Airport, breaking the 2002 record of 1.34 inches. in Igor. Sikorsky Memorial Airport in Bridgeport, Connecticut, was reported to have 2.6 inches of rain, beating the 1958 record of 1.32 inches.

In Central Park, 2.81 inches of rain fell.

More rain was recorded in some places on Long Island. Searingtown tops Nassau with 3.51 inches, and St. James’s Suffolk tops 5.35 inches, according to a weather service chart published late Tuesday.

In Nassau, winds were 41 mph in Bayville. Suffolk’s top speed was 52 miles per hour on Great Gaol Island, according to the Weather Service.

The winds were calmer in Central Park, Ramone said, with a top speed of 29 mph.

Sunny tomorrow, then more rain

Looking at the next seven days, the sun’s expected brightness on Thursday will give way to more rain on Friday, mostly after 2 p.m., when odds are 40%. After 8 p.m., chances of precipitation rise to 90%.

On Saturday, the probability of rain is 80%, especially before 2 pm, although there is a 30% chance of rain that night.

Halloween, which falls on Sunday, should be as sunny as it should be on Mondays and Tuesdays, according to the Meteorological Service.

Until Friday, daytime temperatures will struggle to rise from the 50s. After that, it is expected to reach the mid-sixties. Likewise, night lows will drop into the mid-40s and hit the 50s or so by the end of the week.

“Autumn-like temperatures will return to the East Coast over the next several days following the ship’s northern departure as well as the arrival of high pressure over the Ohio Valley, and eventually over the Northeast,” the Weather Service’s Weather Prediction Center said. .

While most Fridays can be dry, winds can reach up to 35 miles per hour, and that night could see “ranges of moderate to heavy rain locally,” the Meteorological Service said, forecasting average totals of an inch. One though two inches can come down in some locations.

“It appears that the main threat from this rain at this point is minor urban flooding, but some of the fastest-responding streams in northeastern New Jersey can reach the banks, especially with the last rains this week,” she added.

Saturday may begin with rain – which may then stop – before it resumes that night.

However, Sunday should be almost perfect for Halloween, with plenty of sunshine and a daytime high of 64 degrees expected. Mondays and Tuesdays look the same
