Wednesday: Showers end

  • High: 59

The heaviest rainfall from this week's storm will come early Wednesday morning and is expected to let up in the afternoon. 

A secondary area of low pressure is likely to form along the East Coast near the Jersey Shore as the main system slides off the coast on Wednesday, according to the FOX Weather Center.

The new low-pressure system will likely enhance the wind impacts for coastal regions as it works its way up the coast before it moves out to sea.

The FOX Forecast Center says snow is possible in upstate New York and parts of New England.
