Quick 3:45 AM update as Euro ensembles show stronger storm for next Sunday:
The new Euro run has a strong 986 mb storm cross Long Island next Sunday evening, and many of the Euro ensemble members also have a strong storm, as shown in the 1st image. The Euro shows the potential for wind gusts up to 45 mph with 1 to 2 inches of rain, but let's see how this evolves since it's a week away and there is a lot of uncertainty. I will update again this afternoon.
