Rain is finally coming to Long Island and the northeast:
The tropics continue to remain quiet with no tropical storms or hurricanes expected for at least the next 5 to 7 days. After that, we are still watching for the potential for tropical development in both the western Caribbean and off the coast of Africa.
While there may be some showers at times the next few days on Long Island, the rainfall totals will be low. However, there should be a decent amount of rain between Tuesday and Thursday with the potential for over 2 inches of rain.
Long Island forecast:
Today: Early morning fog, but becoming partly cloudy and fairly humid with a 20% chance of a passing shower. Highs mostly in the low to mid 70's.
