Sever thunderstorms are forecasted to hit New York City early this afternoon.

After a May with the most rain since 2004, more precipitation is forecasted for every day this week.

Approximately a quarter inch of rain is expected today, according to the National Weather Service (NWS), higher in areas that get hit with thunderstorms.

Due to the expected rains, the NWS has issued a coastal flood advisory for Queens for tonight into early tomorrow morning.

Low-lying areas along the shoreline should expect minor to moderate flooding.

New Yorkers have grown used to the rainy weather after more than 5.75 inches of rain fell in May, the second most rain in the month this millennium, and it isn’t likely to stop anytime soon. Three of the first four days of June have seen rainfall, and the forecast predicts a better than 30 percent chance of rain everyday through Thursday.
