From the NWS:

The primary threat with this system continues to be the 
potential for strong to damaging wind gusts. High wind warning 
continues for Suffolk County, winds advisory for all of CT, NYC
and coastal NJ, based on strong low level jet crossing east
through the area through 00Z, with 50-70 kt winds at 925 mb.

Widespread 45-55 mph wind gusts being noted along the coastal
plain, with scattered gusts 60-65 along the south shore of LI
and isolated along SE CT coast. These strongest winds have been
observed on back edge of llj and leading edge of instability 
gradient, with peak winds likely already reached for NYC/NJ
metro and translating east through around 5 pm.

In terms of precipitation, overrunning moderate to locally heavy
rain and embedded elevated convection will push northeast 
through the early afternoon ahead of warm front, with potential
for more isolated to scattered convection mid afternoon into 
into early this evening (particularly NE NJ, NYC and coastal
plain) as region becomes warm sectored. Best points of focus 
for strong convection appear to be with with a broken line of 
storms developing over E PA along the pre- frontal trough and 
moving ne into the region late this afternoon this evening. 

High shear, strong veering wind profile, and marginal elevated 
instability will pose a localized threat for strong to damaging 
winds, and even a brief tornado. Some uncertainty on how this 
holds together as it approaches the coast, removed from better 
synoptic shortwave forcing to the west, but will me monitored
for short fuse convective warnings.
