Quick 4 AM update on Zeta and the Long Island forecast:
TD28 is now Tropical Storm Zeta with maximum sustained winds of 40 mph as of the 2 AM advisory, and it has very deep convection, as you can see in the 2nd image. It's still projected to become a minimal hurricane and then weaken slightly before landfall. Track guidance has shifted slightly east, but there is a little less confidence than usual in the projected landfall location. I will have more updates today.
Long Island forecast:
Today (Sunday): Increasing clouds with showers developing by late afternoon or early evening from southwest to northeast. Chilly with highs only in the mid 50's.
Tomorrow (Monday): Cloudy with a 50% chance of some showers in the morning and then just a 20% chance in the afternoon with highs in the low mid 60's.
Tuesday: Mostly cloudy with a slight chance of a shower with highs in the upper 50's.
Wednesday: Partly to mostly cloudy with only a slight chance of a shower with highs mostly in the upper 50's to around 60 degrees.
Thursday: Cloudy with a 70% chance of rain developing in the morning or afternoon. Highs close to 60 degrees.
Friday: Rainy, breezy, and chilly with highs in the low to mid 50's. Rain possibly ending in the late afternoon or evening.
Halloween: Mostly sunny and chilly with highs in the low to mid 50's.
