Tucked away on the west side of the small town of Broad Channel in the middle of Jamiaca Bay is a narrow, dead end, street that goes by the name of West 12th Road. Those of us who live there know that the nice part about living in a small town is that when you are not quite sure what is going on, someone else always does! [Peter J.

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

Mon, 2018-10-08 11:33

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.
