Eight people have been killed after winds and soaking rains pounded the city overnight - with historic flooding that shut down subways and turned streets into rivers.
The remnants of #Ida could dump as much as 6 inches of rain on the region. (Put another way - the average monthly rainfall in Central Park could fall in one day today.) The threat of tornadoes also increased for NYC this morning.
Temperatures are expected to climb into the 90s on Wednesday and stay there through Friday (a heat wave is 3 consecutive days of 90+ degree temps)
