NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – Heavy, drenching, wind-driven rain will hit the tri-state on Saturday, threatening flooding in some areas.

Light rain in the city Saturday morning will give way to heavy rainfall in the midday and afternoon, according to AccuWeather.

The rain arrives around noon and lasts until 5 or 6 p.m.

The city could see 1 inch to more than 1 ½ inches of rain over just a few hours—a high amount in such a short period of time.

Coastal areas and areas with poor drainage could experience flooding before the rain moves out.

Areas to the northwest may see some freezing rain for a brief period early on, creating slick, dangerous conditions on roadways.

Temperatures in the city will be in the 40s throughout the day before rising to near 50 in the evening. The low Saturday will be 38. It will remain breezy overnight.

Sunday is partly sunny and breezing with a high of 47.

Monday and Tuesday will also be partly sunny with highs in the mid 40s.
