Update on Hurricane Teddy, the rest of the tropics, and Long Island weather:
Tropical Depression Sally:
Sally will be bringing flooding rainfall of between 3 and 6 inches to parts of Georgia, the Carolinas, and Virginia today into tonight (see 2nd image).
Tropical Storm Vicky:
Vicky is finally expected to weaken to a Tropical Depression later today and it's nothing to worry about.
Teddy has strengthened over night and now has maximum sustained winds of 105 mph and is a threat to Bermuda Sunday night into Monday. Beyond that, most of the Euro ensembles still show somewhat of a left hook into northern New England or Nova Scotia, but it doesn't have support from other models. Teddy is expected to become a Category 3 hurricane later today and could approach Cat 4 strength briefly, but it should weaken somewhat before getting near Bermuda.
Invest 90L now has a 90% chance of tropical development within the next 5 days, according to the National Hurricane Center. It's probably going to become a Tropical Depression today and Tropical Storm Wilfred tomorrow or Saturday. It's not moving very much and will likely be around in the Gulf into next week. The long-term track is still uncertain. You can see all of the projected rainfall in the Gulf for the next 7 days in the 2nd image.
Long Island forecast:
Today: Mostly cloudy and fairly humid with highs mostly in the mid to upper 70's. A couple of showers are possible late at night.
Tomorrow: There is a 60% chance of showers in the morning as we will be on the northern fringe of the rain shield from the remnants of Hurricane Sally. Highs mostly in the upper 60's. The best chance of rain is for southeastern Suffolk. The sun should come out by mid to late afternoon from northwest to southeast, and it will turn less humid and chilly by evening. It will also be breezy with wind gusts of 15 to 20 mph.
