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.

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.
