Lee will likely peak as a Cat 5 monster hurricane and the ensembles are a little closer to northeast

- Firstly, we have the hot and humid weather continuing today and tomorrow with a Heat Advisory in effect for Nassau and western Suffolk today with highs in the low 90's and a heat index in the upper 90's. The humid weather continues through the weekend with some scattered showers and thunderstorms possible at times.

- Lee is already up to 65 mph maximum sustained winds and will likely become a hurricane today. All indications point to Lee undergoing rapid intensification and probably becoming a Cat 5 hurricane this weekend before it levels off and then some weakening occurs. The National Hurricane Center is forecasting it to have maximum sustained winds of 150 mph at its peak with max gusts over 180 mph. While most models and ensemble members keep it off the east coast of the United States, the Euro ensembles have shifted west overall again for the 3rd run in a row, and there are some that have landfall in eastern New England, but it's still only a slight chance for now, but stay tuned.

- Also, Margot will likely form and become a hurricane way out in the Atlantic with it being of no concern to us. The Euro ensembles are also hinting at another one behind Margot that may have to be watched.
