On average most will see between 0.5" and 1 inch of rain.

Hudson Valley Weather says this is weather that many would "LOVE to see" if this happened in the winter. That's if you love snow.
"Vertical Motion in Atmosphere Brings Soaking Rain. This is the type of thing we'd LOVE to see if it was the middle of winter. An 18 hour period where the Hudson Valley is north of an upper level low, and intense upward motion of the air results in an extended period of moderate to at times heavy, rain," Hudson Valley Weather added. "A soggy 24 hours ahead... thanks to vertical velocity associated with upper level low pressure. Let's hope this happens about 4 or 5 months from now."
