Stormy night ahead with heavy rain and gusty winds, especially in central to eastern Suffolk:

- A quick note on the tropics as Tropical Storm Karl will start moving SSE later today towards a landfall in Mexico late tomorrow night or early Saturday morning. There is also a slight chance of a tropical system forming out in the Atlantic, but it's nothing to worry about.

- The area of the highest rainfall totals has shifted east into central to eastern Suffolk County on Long Island with 1 to 2 inches of rain with locally higher amounts close to 3 inches being possible. The strongest winds will also be in eastern Suffolk with gusts up to 50 mph late tonight. While there may be a few widely scattered showers in the morning into early afternoon, most of the action starts in the mid to late afternoon with the main event really being this evening and all night.
