Friday, August 20th: Henri to Bring Rough Surf, Rip Currents, Potential Rain on Saturday
Here are the key messages for our region in regards to Tropical Storm Henri.
- Tropical Storm Henri is expected to turn northward soon and could get close to southern New England. However, tropical storm force winds are likely to stay well off our coast.
- The risk for rip currents and rough surf will remain elevated through at least Sunday
- Although the main area of rain associated with Henri will stay off our coast, a secondary area of rain could develop over our region Saturday and Saturday night. If this secondary area of rain develops, there is a potential for heavy rain and flash flooding.
- Minor tidal flooding is possible with the evening and overnight high tides tonight, Saturday night, and Sunday night.
