The Heat bested the Thunder last night, but some thunder may do away with the heat today.

The National Weather Service (NWS) has upgraded the severe thunderstorm watch to a warning.  Winds of 50 mph are expected shortly, the NWS reported.

A flood advisory has also been issued.  some areas may see up to an inch of rain over the next hour.

The watch will remain in effect for Queens until 9 p.m. tonight.

The storm should help break the heat and humidity that have blanketed the city the past three days.  Temperatures over the weekend are forecasted for the 80s.
