Enjoy Wednesday’s mild October weather, because we’ve got clouds and rain on deck — and the latter could put a damper on the Yankees’ next playoff game.
Thursday’s morning commute is expected to be dry, but showers and storms begin to move in from eastern Pennsylvania and the Delaware Valley area by midday. Periods of heavy rain will be blasting the city by the time the evening commute rolls around, and a few thunderstorms are likely. Flash floods and gusty, damaging winds appear to be the main threats.
Breaking Down Thursday’s Weather Threats

The Yankees are set to take on the Cleveland Guardians in the Bronx at 7:37 pm ET Thursday and it doesn’t look great weather-wise. We’re looking at the potential for thunderstorms at first pitch, and while that risk lessens over the course of the evening, it should stay damp through the seventh-inning stretch and for fans on their way home afterward.
The Aaron Judge-led playoff team leads the Guardians in the series 1-0.
Skies should clear by midnight, with sunshine returning Friday amid temps in the mid-60s to kick off a good start to the weekend. Picture-perfect weather looks to be on tap for Saturday, too, before the next chance of rain arrives Sunday.
