Update on Tropics and Long Island Weather
- The National Hurricane Center is still at a 90% chance of tropical development for Invest 98L and 60% for Invest 97L.
- The new Euro ensembles show Invest 98L being not quite as strong as it was showing yesterday, and it generally shows the path being farther south with many of them passing just south of Florida and then curving up towards the Florida Panhandle or central Gulf Coast states. The models will continue to jump around with the track beyond 5 or 6 days out. It will likely be classified as a Tropical Depression by tomorrow night and then Tropical Storm Laura shortly thereafter.
- I will continue to update with the latest information.
Long Island weather:
- Showers and thunderstorms will end early this morning, and then we will generally be in a dry pattern through the weekend with only a slight chance of a stray afternoon shower or thunderstorm today and then again on Sunday. Otherwise, it will be partly to mostly sunny each day.
- Highs will be mostly in the low to mid 80's today with low to moderate humidity, near 80 tomorrow and Thursday with low humidity, and low to mid 80's from Friday to Sunday with increasing humidity each day.
