NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — The remnants of Tropical Storm Karen are expected to affect the Tri-State Area next week, but only in the form of a rainy day.
CBS 2 Meteorologist Vanessa Murdock reported Saturday morning that the tropical storm – which will no longer be classified as a tropical storm once it arrives in the area – will bring added moisture beginning Monday into Tuesday.
The precipitation is expected to amount to 0.5 inches to 1 inch of rain, in conjunction with a cold front.
The wet weather was expected to continue through the day on Tuesday.
