Henri is getting that “feathering” of the cloud cover in the outflow that is typical of storms that are about to strengthen. The cloud signature has improved since yesterday and last night and the center is under the deep convection as the wind shear issues continue to diminish. We expect Henri to strengthen overnight and on Saturday as it heads up the coast.

The National Hurricane Center forecast has been nudged a little more to the left or west. Landfall over Central or Eastern Long Island is expected to occur around midday Sunday. Until then there are no major weather issues tonight which will be warm and humid with lows in the upper 60s and lower 70s. Saturday looks mostly cloudy with a few breaks of sun for the entire area from Eastern Pennsylvania to Southern New England. Some downpours or thunderstorms not related to Henri could develop inland during the afternoon. Highs will reach into the 80s.

Weather conditions begin to deteriorate during the early morning hours Sunday as the winds begin to increase in the warning area and rain develops around daybreak. This will last about 6 to 8 hours of heavy rain and the strongest winds. Expect the strongest winds to be east of the storm track with the heaviest rains to the west and north west. 2 to 4 inches of rain is likely west of the track. Henri will approach and possibly come ashore as a category 1 hurricane before weakening to a tropical storm and moving inland in New England spreading heavy rain northward. The remnant low of Henri will move northeast late Sunday night and Monday and weather conditions in the warning area will start to improve Sunday night with better weather on Monday though there still could be some leftover showers. More on Henri and what to expect on tonight’s Joe & Joe Weather Show.
