All week I’ve been wondering why the Hurricane Center guidance has been so far west of the computer guidance? I’ll probably never know, but as of this morning NHC has moved their forecast east. That means they’re starting to lean where I’m leaning.
Of course leaning is not the same as forecast certainty. There’s still a great deal of wiggle room. Connecticut is inside the cone of uncertainty!
Though this forecast clips Southeastern Connecticut the strongest winds will be east in Rhode Island and the Cape.
The timing hasn’t changed. We’ll have showers Saturday, then windblown squalls Sunday. Six inch plus rainfall amounts are still forecast for the weekend.
I am still worried… still apprehensive. A direct hit of some sort is still possible. It just looks a little less likely.
It is likely we’ll have trees, branches and power lines down. This is by no means a total miss.
