Yellow Alert issued for Sunday as remnants of Ian bring rounds of rain

First Alert Weather: CBS2's 10/2 Sunday morning update 04:02

After a very wet start to the day Saturday, we are now seeing a break in the rain. The rain has been in association with the remnants of Hurricane Ian. It is also very damp, cool and breezy. Temps have been hovering in the mid to upper 50s and will stay there for pretty much the next 24 hours.

Sunday looks to be nearly identical to Saturday, with some minor differences. Unlike Saturday, rain will be lighter overall and will persist from the late morning through the afternoon. Areas to the south and east of the city is where the rain will be most concentrated.

Winds will also be higher than Saturday, with some gusts reaching 40 mph, especially for coastal New Jersey. The winds may lead to some coastal flooding, and therefore a coastal flood advisory and a wind advisory have been issued in these areas. We will struggle to reach the 60-degree mark, with a high of only 59.

Regarding rainfall totals for the period, forecast models have come down considerably from where they were Friday. Now it appears that the majority of the region will see additional rain totals averaging around a quarter of an inch, while coastal New Jersey may see totals well over an inch. A Yellow Alert is in place through Sunday.

SUNDAY

Sunday is now trending wetter and windier at the coast. This weather will disrupt your day. As the cold front tries to kick Ian's leftovers out to sea, they will phase a little, and we could now see another round of rain. There will be a decent range in rainfall numbers and effects. North of Rockland County will see little rain and wind compared to, say, Beach Haven, New Jersey, or the eastern half of Suffolk County. Winds could increase by Sunday afternoon with gusts to 45 mph out east.

Wednesday 11 p.m. update

Tracking Hurricane Ian: Wednesday 11 p.m. update 02:06

As of 11 p.m. Wednesday, Hurricane Ian is a category 1 storm located 80 miles south of Cape Canaveral, Florida, with winds sustained at 90 mph.

Gusts in Tampa were near 65 mph around 8 p.m.

The worst of the wind is over, but heavy rainfall is still a problem as well as inland flooding.

The storm is such a slow mover that there is still potentially 12-16+ hours of rain before the storm pops offshore of South Carolina and likely makes another landfall near Charleston, South Carolina, on Friday.

CBS2 Hurricane Ian 9/28 update
CBS2

What's next?

Heavy rain bands will hit the Carolinas and Virginias before we feel at least some of the remnants.

If the storm pops offshore and stays offshore, it has a relentless moisture feed -- the ocean -- and that could be troublesome.

On the other side of the coin, if the storm pulls back west and drifts farther inland, we could see just some light showers.

We will have a better grip on what our weekend forecast holds shortly, but let's start by planning on some rain for Saturday. 

We will likely see another round of tropical remnants Monday into Tuesday.

11 p.m. Tuesday update

As of 11 p.m. Tuesday, Hurricane Ian is lashing much of southern Florida, with a Tornado Watch in effect until Wednesday morning. Multiple reports, as well as radar, indicated funnel clouds have been seen.

Winds are currently 120 mph, holding Ian steady as a Category 3. It's moving at 10 mph north. It's a healthy storm with large eye about 33 miles in diameter. In addition to tornado watches, flood alerts have been popping up all day. The models are indicating possibly becoming a Category 4 before landfall, due to the slow progression.

It will now likely make landfall in Fort Meyers between Sarasota to Naples on Wednesday afternoon.

Regarding storm surge, numbers are up a little from yesterday, now showing 8-12 feet at its peak from just south of Tampa Bay, down to Bonita Beach.

Potentially huge rainfall numbers could be seen through northern central Florida, with 1-2 feet of rain on the table for some areas.

CBS2 Hurricane Ian 9/27 update
CBS2

Hurricane force winds over 74 mph are likely to start hitting land Wednesday morning and could last through much of the day. The storm is slowing down a bit, allowing for multiple high tide cycles to occur. This is what will prolong any surge or inundation and really elevate the dangers. As the eyewall breaches the beaches Wednesday afternoon, peak winds will occur.

CBS2 Hurricane Ian 9/27 update
CBS2

Tornadoes have spawned south of West Palm, with lines of thunderstorms through much of Tuesday. The heavy rain will pivot north, currently eyeing Orlando right now as a rainfall bullseye. Miami will see fringe effects of the storm with 1-3 inches of additional rain and gusts to 40 mph.
