Update:

High Wind Watch has now been issued for much of the tristate area.

The watch is in effect from 6 p.m. Sunday until 6 a.m. Monday for Bergen, Rockland, Westchester, Putnam and Fairfield counties.

Sustained wind speeds of 25 to 35 mph with gusts up to 60 mph are possible during this time.

Downed trees and power lines that could cause power outages are possible.

Earlier report:

A major storm bringing Nor'easter-type conditions, including torrential downpours, is moving through the tristate area.

A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for northeast New Jersey, the Hudson Valley, southern Connecticut, New York City and Long Island. It is in effect from noon Sunday to 6 a.m. Monday.

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding, a very dangerous situation, the National Weather Service said in a statement, noting residents should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action should flash flood warnings be issued.

The storm could dump as much as 4 inches of rainfall.

A stormy Sunday, the fifth anniversary of Super Storm Sandy, will see showers and thunderstorms, with some of the storms producing heavy rain, with rainfall amounts of up to 2 inches possible during daylight hours.

Gusty winds of up to 28 miles per hour could bring down trees and cause power outages and be accompanied by flash flooding and locally severe storms.

Rain, which will be heavy at times, will continue Sunday night with another 1 to 2 inches possible.

Spotty showers will continue until around noontime Monday as the cold front passes through, bringing down temperatures. Monday's high will only be in the mid- to upper-50s with partly sunny skies in the afternoon. Strong winds are also possible Monday.
