Long Island Weather Update For Tropical Storm Isaias
A tropical storm warning has been put into effect for Long Island and other coastal locations within the tri-state region as Tropical Storm Isaias marks its way up the coast.
The worst weather for Long Island is expected to begin Tuesday afternoon and continue through Tuesday night into early Wednesday morning. Tropical Storm Isaias is currently slowly moving up the East coast coming from Florida.
The weather today is expected to be mostly Sunny with hot and humid conditions. High temperatures are expected to be in the mid-upper 80s with moderate winds. Going into tomorrow, expect humidity to rise.
Some Long Island areas are going to see 1-3 inches of rain which may lead to localized flooding. Tides will be about 1-3 feet about normal. Flooding will be exaggerated because of a full moon high tide. Windy conditions are expected to be stable at around 20-30 mph with wind gusts reaching up to 65 mph.
Because of this combination of weather elements, Long Island should be prepared in case power goes out. Isaias has been picking up speed as it travels up the coast, which may lead it to become a hurricane.
The stormy conditions are expected to be over by the end of the day on Wednesday which will give way to beautiful weather later in the week.
