A severe thunderstorm watch issued by the National Weather service on Saturday afternoon is no longer in effect, as of 10 p.m.

"The severe thunderstorm watch is no longer in effect and we are not expecting any severe thunderstorms tonight," said meteorologist James Connolly. 

Any remaining bad weather was headed east at 10 p.m., according to an update posted to the NWS New York Twitter account.

"The last batch of shower activity is pushing off to the east across eastern sections," the post read. "Any showers end in the next hour out east, with clouds and stratus remaining for a good portion of the overnight. Back to sunshine on Sunday!"

NWS advisory had warned earlier on Saturday that the evening could see damaging winds with scattered gusts reaching up to 65 mph, with a risk of isolated tornadoes and large hail. 

The storm watch extended to parts of Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey and New York.

Sunday is expected to be sunny with a high of about 49 degrees.

Monday and Tuesday also are expected to be sunny with more rain predicted for Wednesday.
