After Crossing Florida, Will Emily Affect the East Coast? How Much Rain on Long Island the next 7 da

Tropical Storm Emily formed unexpectedly just west of Tampa, Florida yesterday morning, and it brought strong winds and torrential downpours to parts of the state. It will be emerging off the east coast of Florida today as Tropical Depression Emily, but will it re-strengthen and affect the mid-Atlantic states or New England? While it's probable that Emily regains some strength, it appears destined to head out to sea as you can see in the following image:

As for Long Island weather, today will another sunny and warm day with temperatures in the mid to upper 80's and higher humidity levels than yesterday. Tomorrow should be mostly cloudy in the morning and partly cloudy in the afternoon with temperatures in the mid 80's, and there is a better chance of a stray shower in the afternoon or evening. Thursday and Friday bring more of the same, and again a stray shower or thunderstorm cannot be ruled out. Even the cold front that comes through Saturday morning may not bring widespread shower activity, and it will be followed by sunny and dry weather for Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday next week, so overall it will be a relatively dry next 7 days on Long Island. The following image shows expected rainfall for the next 7 days, and it's showing less than a half of an inch of rain for Long Island:
