Update on Harvey and Long Island Weather
Former Tropical Storm Harvey is expected to re-organize in the Gulf of Mexico today and become a Tropical Storm by tonight as it heads towards the Texas coastline. It is expected to make landfall in the vicinity of Corpus Christi as a strong Tropical Storm with the potential to bring massive flooding to parts of southeast Texas and Louisiana as the storm will come to a halt and meander over Texas and Louisiana for several days. Widespread 10 to 20 inch rainfall totals are expected.
Regarding Long Island weather, humidity levels will drop dramatically between 9 AM and Noon today as skies begin to clear behind the cold front. Sunny skies, low humidity, and below normal temperatures are expected for the next 7 days. There is a chance that Long Island may not see any rain until late next week when the remnants of Harvey approach the region.
