Update on Tropics with Nana no longer expected today and Long Island weather through Labor Day:
Tropical Depression Fifteen is encountering strong wind shear, and while there is still a slight chance that it becomes Tropical Storm Nana today, it's not looking likely.
Regarding Invest 99L in the Caribbean, this is from the National Hurricane Center: a tropical depression is likely to form during the next couple of days before the system reaches Central America Wednesday night. Locally heavy rains and gusty winds are possible on Jamaica today, and interests there, as well as in northern Nicaragua, Honduras, Belize, Guatemala, and the Yucatan Peninsula, should monitor the progress of this disturbance.
The tropical wave that will be emerging off the coast of Africa is being given a 30% chance of tropical development within the next 5 days by the National Hurricane Center. This one will bear watching.
Today: Cloudy and humid this morning with scattered showers, and then becoming partly cloudy this afternoon with highs mostly in the upper 70's. The wind will be mostly out of the ESE to SE at 10 to 15 mph.
Tomorrow: Cloudy and humid with a 60% chance of scattered showers at times and possibly a thunderstorm in the late afternoon or evening. Highs will be mostly in the upper 70's.
Thursday: Partly cloudy, warm, and humid with a 30% chance of a scattered thunderstorm in the afternoon or evening. Highs mostly in the low to mid 80's. There is a better chance of showers and thunderstorms later at night in association with the cold front that will be moving through.
