Enjoy the nice weather because it won't last:
- Hurricane Sam is still a Cat 4, and it will pass well east of Bermuda and should stay southeast of Newfoundland.
- Invest 90L will likely become Tropical Storm Victor by tonight or tomorrow, but it will stay way out in the Atlantic and be nothing to worry about for us.
- Invest 91L may not develop, so that will still leave Wanda as the next name on the list.
- A nice 4-day stretch of weather for Long Island, but for New England there will be a few passing showers tonight into tomorrow morning, and there is only a slight chance for a light passing shower to make it to Long Island (see 4th image for rainfall map).
- A period of unsettled weather will begin later on Sunday or Sunday night and last into the middle and possibly the end of next week, but there is still uncertainty in exactly how it plays out.
