NWS - Hazardous Weather Outlook


Hazardous Weather Outlook
National Weather Service New York NY
456 AM EDT Tue Oct 9 2018

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for southern Connecticut,
northeast New Jersey and southeast New York.

Heavy rainfall may be possible Thursday into Thursday evening as a
cold front approaches, and as a tropical moisture plume streams in
from the south between offshore high pressure and Michael, expected
to be a tropical storm moving through the Southeast states at that
time. Any thunderstorms that develop may also become capable of
producing some isolated damaging wind gusts in the afternoon.

Hurricane Michael could impact our area as a strong Tropical system later this week


The updated NHC forecast is near the upper-end of the guidance and calls for rapid
strengthening over the next 24 hours, and brings Michael to major hurricane status.
After intensification, perhaps due to a slight increase in southwesterly shear.
Weakening is expected after landfall, but the forecast track keeps a portion
of the circulation over water along the southeast U.S. coast, so Michael is
predicted to remain a tropical storm through 72 hours. The system should become
a powerful extratropical low off the U.S. Mid-Atlantic coast in about 4 days.

NWS - Hazardous Weather Outlook


Hazardous Weather Outlook
National Weather Service New York NY
440 AM EDT Sun Sep 16 2018

NYZ075-080-081-178-179-170845-
Kings (Brooklyn)-Southwestern Suffolk-Southeastern Suffolk-
Southern Queens-Southern Nassau-
440 AM EDT Sun Sep 16 2018

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for southeast New York.

The remains of Florence are currently forecast to bring one to one

amounts possible, from Monday afternoon into early Tuesday evening.
While the most likely possibility is minor flooding from any heavy
rainfall, there is still a low chance for mainly localized flash
flooding.

Hazardous Weather Outlook
National Weather Service New York NY
558 PM EDT Fri Sep 14 2018

NYZ075-080-081-178-179-152200-
Kings (Brooklyn)-Southwestern Suffolk-Southeastern Suffolk-
Southern Queens-Southern Nassau-
558 PM EDT Fri Sep 14 2018

There is potential for heavy rainfall and breezy conditions Monday
Night through Tuesday Night as the remnants of Tropical Storm
Florence move through the Northeast. There is still quite a bit of
uncertainty on the track of this remnant low, but a swath of 2 to 4
inches of rain with locally higher amounts is possible in its track.
Due to recent rain events, grounds are saturated and river and
streams flows are running well above normal. If the heavy rain swath
ends up over the local region, there will be potential for urban and
poor drainage flooding as well as flooding along quick responding
small rivers, streams, and creeks.

There is a high risk of rip currents on Saturday, and possibly on
Sunday.
