Update on the tropics and Long Island weather through Labor Day weekend
There are now 3 areas to watch, as designated by the National Hurricane Center. It looks like the system that will develop off the Carolina coastline has a pretty good chance of becoming Tropical Storm Nana as it heads out to sea; the National Hurricane Center is giving it a 50% probability of tropical development. The other two systems are at a 30% and 40% probability of tropical development within the next 5 days.
(8:20 AM edit: There are now 4 areas to watch - see the last image for the newly updated map from the National Hurricane Center.)
While the map in the 1st image looks kind of ominous, the Euro ensembles are showing that there isn't really a threat to the United States from these systems. However, when looking 15 days out, tracks can certainly change.
Today: Sunny with low humidity with highs mostly in the upper 70's. The wind will be mostly from the northwest at 10 to 15 mph.
Tomorrow: Partly cloudy in the morning, but becoming mostly cloudy in the afternoon. Highs mostly in the mid 70's.
Tuesday: A 50% chance of showers in the morning and just a 20% chance of showers in the afternoon, and it will probably end up just being mostly cloudy in the afternoon with highs mostly in the mid 70's.
