    Forecasters predict that Tropical Storm Henri could strengthen into a hurricane over the weekend as the storm nears the New England coastline.

    On Friday morning, the National Weather Service (NWS) issued a Hurricane Watch and a Storm Surge watch for southern New England.

    A Hurricane Watch means that a hurricane is possible within the next 48 hours.

    NWS Boston MA, 8-20, 11 a.m.
    Should Henri make landfall as a hurricane, it would be the first time in southern New England since Hurricane Bob in 1991. Hurricane Bob killed 17 people and caused $1.5 billion in property damage. It has been 10 years since a Hurricane Watch was issued for southern New England.

    According to the NWS, hurricane conditions and storm surges are possible starting Sunday and into Monday in portions of Long Island, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and southeastern Massachusetts.

    In addition to heavy rain and winds, the storm surges could bring three to five feet of water into affected areas.

    “There remains a great deal of uncertainty with regard to Henri’s track which will have a huge impact on who in the northeast sees the strong winds, heavy rain, and storm surge,” the NWS said in a Friday morning Facebook post.

    Maybe if they were a little nicer and provided better parking . The hurricane might show a little more sympathy

    I haven't heard the word "Historic" used yet, so it can't be that bad.

    According to my wife there was a little rain off and on but that was it. However,nearby Henri spun off at least 6 tornadoes, 2 of which were less than 20 minutes from our home.

    Hurriane Ida will probably be downgraded to a tropical storm about the time it hits New Orleans.

    Doubt it. The waters of the Gulf of Mexico are very warm right about this time of year-which makes conditions very favorable for tropical cyclone development. And lately the US seems to have bad luck with storms whose names start with the letter “I”(Ike,Irma,Irene,Ivan,Igor,just to name a few-all of those names were retired from the list by the WMO).
