Hazardous Weather Outlook For Westchester, Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, Staten Island, Long Island
The National Weather Service has issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook for Westchester, New York, Bronx, Richmond, Kings, Queens, Nassau and Suffolk counties.
These counties have a "risk of excessive rainfall on Saturday as tropical moisture advances north and northeast during the first half of the weekend," according to the National Weather Service.
Will Ian Drench The Mid-Hudson Valley?
On Wednesday, Hudson Valley Weather did not think the Hudson Valley would see much of an impact from Ian.
"As usual when a tropical storm impacts the south the question arises as to what impacts will affect our region. At the moment the impacts looks to be very little, the same cold front pulling Ian NE and slowing its progress will pull its remnant NE as well. A look at total precipitation from the GFS and Euro show the soaking impacts of Ian to our south with a sharp cut off near NJ," Hudson Valley Weather wrote on Facebook.
However, Hudson Valley Weather now believes there is a greater chance of the storm reaching the Mid-Hudson Valley.
"Trends in data have continued to inch the impacts from the remnants of Ian further north," Hudson Valley Weather wrote Friday morning. "Just how much of an impact and how much rainfall occurs will depend on how far north the moisture can push." The confidence of at least a moderate rainfall is highest across the southern parts of the region, with impacts lessening to as little as scattered showers across northernmost zones."
Hudson Valley Weather believes there is a chance of over an inch of rain in Orange, Rockland and Westchester counties.
