Rain moving across Long Island and update on Eta, Theta, and where future Iota will go:
The rain is arriving on Long Island right on schedule, and it will continue on and off until Friday afternoon with most places getting 1 to 2 inches. The highest totals should be along the south shore. Looking ahead, the middle of next week looks cold with highs in the 40's with Wednesday being the coldest day.
Tropical Storm Eta has 70 mph maximum sustained winds, but it will slowly weaken before landfall. Hurricane Watches have been discontinued and have been replaced with Tropical Storm Warnings. Maximum projected storm surge is still 3 to 5 feet. I have included the maps below, including projected wind gusts, rain, and storm surge. Tornadoes are also possible.
Tropical Storm Theta is still moving eastward in the Atlantic with maximum sustained winds of 60 mph.
Invest 98L could become Tropical Storm Iota this weekend, and it will likely head towards Central America. I have included the Euro ensembles map below.
