Showers and thunderstorms will drench the Tri-State area Thursday night into early-Friday, though forecasters aren't concerned about severe weather, like they were one week ago.

Following a rainy Wednesday, New York City is in line for another 2 inches of rain. Areas north and west of the city could see 3 inches. Flooding could be an issue in isolated areas, but is unlikely to cause widespread damage.

There is a 5 percent risk of "excessive rainfall" — meaning rainfall that could cause flash flooding — according to the National Weather Service's Weather Prediction Center.

Winds will be gusty at around 30 mph Thursday afternoon, but should ease as the evening goes on.

Major League Baseball announced yesterday that the Yankees-Red Sox season opener was being moved from Thursday to Friday afternoon at 1 p.m.

Fortunately for baseball fans, Friday and Saturday should be sunny and clear with highs near 60.

Temperatures are expected to trend upwards into next week with more sunny spring days to enjoy.
