The catch is that tomorrow night the clouds and rain will catch back up with us and will continue to be a scattered nuisance from Thursday all the way into mid-Sunday, with even a chance of a thunderstorm on Saturday. The good news though is that again, it's scattered so we'll be hovering between a 30% and 50% chance of rain from Thursday into Sunday.
Below is the precip map for Thursday alone; you can see the NY metro area in that hotspot for the more concentrated precip. Grtanted it's nowhere near what's in the center of the country, we'll have a chance of seeing up to half an inch nonetheless, possibly more if thunderstorms hit.
Let's hope those showers break up by the time they get here.
