Henri is forecast to accelerate northward today and strengthen to hurricane status. Henri is then expected to slow down as it nears Long Island, where the worst conditions are expected. Also as it approaches the New England coast, it will move over cooler water and begin to weaken gradually. Once it reaches land, it will continue to weaken. The current guidance is indicating a weak post-tropical system with remnant moisture crossing the southern Maritimes Monday and Tuesday.
The storm won’t likely affect our weather directly until Monday, and at this stage it may simply bring light to moderate wind and some rain. Larger than normal surf conditions will develop on the Atlantic Coast of Nova Scotia during the day on Sunday.
