Update on Tropical Storm Josephine, Invest 96L (Future Kyle?), and Long Island Weather
- There isn't much to worry about with Tropical Storm Josephine since it will stay north of the Leeward Islands, and then it will start weakening, so it will not be a tropical system by the time it gets near Bermuda. - Invest 96L, near Cape Hatteras, will be moving away from the coast. The National Hurricane Center is still giving it a 40% chance of tropical or subtropical development as it heads out to sea. The next name on the list is Kyle. - Some of the Euro ensemble members are starting to show a hurricane in days 10 to 15 (see 3rd image), but nothing to worry about right now.
Long Island forecast: - Today: Mostly cloudy this morning, and then becoming partly cloudy and less humid this afternoon with highs mostly in the low to mid 80's. The wind will be mostly out of the ENE at 10 to 15 mph this afternoon. - Tomorrow: Mostly sunny and comfortable with highs mostly in the upper 70's to low 80's. The wind will mostly be out of the ENE at 10 to 15 mph in the afternoon. - Sunday: The Euro keeps the rain to our south, but I'm not buying that. It looks like it will be cloudy and cool with rain developing by late morning or early to mid afternoon. Highs will be mostly in the mid 70's with an ENE wind at 10 to 20 mph. The potential exists for over an inch or rain by Monday morning. - Monday: The showers should end by mid to late morning, but there is uncertainty in the timing still. The sun should come out in the afternoon with highs mostly in the low 80's. A cold front may bring a shower at night. - Tuesday: Mostly sunny and comfortable with highs mostly in the low 80's. - Wednesday: Mostly sunny and comfortable with highs mostly near 80 degrees.
