Update on the tropics and Long Island weather:
Teddy, Beta, and Paulette have all been declared post-tropical, so there are currently no tropical cyclones in the Atlantic basin, and it's expected to remain that way through this weekend.
Post-tropical cyclone Teddy is currently battering Nova Scotia as the center of circulation will be moving inland this morning. It has maximum sustained winds of 70 mph and a minimum central pressure of 957 mb. The wind field is massive as tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 520 miles.
The remnants of Beta will bring plenty of rain to the southeast the next couple of days, and the rain should pass south of Long Island on Friday night.
In the first week of October, there is the potential for two tropical systems. The Euro ensembles are showing a potential tropical system off the coast of Africa and another in the western Caribbean with the potential to move northward. It's too soon for any specifics.
Long Island forecast:
Today: Mostly sunny and warmer with highs mostly in the mid to upper 70's.
Tomorrow: Partly to mostly cloudy with highs mostly in the mid 70's.
Friday: Partly cloudy with highs mostly in the mid 70's.
