In addition, here is the expected day by day breakdown of “Frankenstorm” (that’s what some ppl are calling it, I like it so let’s roll with it)
Sunday afternoon: Bands of showers develop, with wind gusts increasing to 45 mph.
Sunday evening: Rains grow heavier, especially south of the city. The winds become quite gusty, up to 50 mph. Expect coastal flooding at high tide.
Monday morning: Heavy rain, winds gusting up to 60 mph. Severe coastal flooding at high tide.
Monday afternoon - evening: Wind gusts of 60 to 80 mph, with major to extreme coastal flooding at high tide. Widespread power outages are expected.
Tuesday morning: Heavy rain and strong wind. Damage still possible during this phase of the storm.
Tuesday evening: Conditions gradually better but still rainy and breezy.
The biggest concern for New Yorkers will be power outages and inland flooding from storm surge. So stay safe everyone and God Bless you all.
