Showers and thunderstorms have rolled in to break up the intense heat that has engulfed the New York City area this week.

The National Weather Service issued flash flood warnings early this morning for New York City and parts of New Jersey.  A little before 10:30 a.m., weather spotters reported flash flooding and a large sinkhole on Main Street and South Clifton Avenue in Lakewood, New Jersey, causing major traffic disruption, the National Weather Service said. Lakewood got up to three inches of rain from the storms that moved through the area early Friday morning.

Thunderstorms will continue to roll through the afternoon, likely bringing showers, the National Weather Service said on Twitter.

It warned that there is a high risk of rip currents and told beachgoers to stay close to a lifeguard if they decide to swim.

For the New York area, the National Weather Service predicts a high 0f 86 degrees on Friday with a low of 64 degrees. This weekend is set to be clearer and sunnier with a high of 81 on Saturday and a low of 64, and a high of 84 on Sunday and a low of 64.
