Tropical Storm to Impact Long Island Tomorrow

While Tropical Storm Harvey will continue to dump heavy rain (an additional 10 to 20 inches) on parts of Texas and Louisiana for the next few days, a storm is forming along the coast of Georgia and South Carolina today. It may be called Tropical Storm Irma by late tonight, as it will slowly strengthen over the next couple of days. It is expected to produce very heavy rainfall over parts of eastern South Carolina and North Carolina, with some amounts as high as 5 to 10 inches! The rain shield is expected to reach Long Island tomorrow afternoon, but the heavy rain will stay well offshore as the storm will be heading northeast out to sea. Winds could gust as high as 40 mph over far eastern Suffolk.

Fair weather is then expected for Wednesday through Saturday, but Friday and Saturday will be much cooler with high temperatures only in the low 70's with low temperatures in the low to mid 50's at night.

There looks to be a new hurricane that will be slowly forming this week and into the weekend in the eastern Atlantic Ocean as we approach the peak of hurricane season in early September. If the name Irma is given to the storm forming today and tomorrow along the coast of the United States, this next hurricane will be named Jose. The storm is predicted by the 3 major models for tropical development, the GFS, Euro, and UKMET. It's too soon to tell the eventual track, but as of now, it looks like it could curve northward and come close to Bermuda.

The following image from the GFS model shows the projected location of potential Tropical Storm Irma as of 2 AM Wednesday:

The following image is from the Euro model, and it's showing the projected location on September 7th of what may be Hurricane Jose:
