Rain and snow could begin around 1 p.m. Wednesday, with heavier rain and stronger winds coming Wednesday night. Up to two inches of rain could fall, says the Weather Service, which has also issued a flood watch for the Westchester County coast.
The rain and wind should taper off through the morning Thursday, with gusts to 36, and a high temperature of 46. Friday should be sunny, with a high near 39, the Weather Service says.
