new NAM shows the wind potential mainly over the water for our area with the exception of far eastern LI

It still shows very strong winds aloft in the early morning hours and not much of an inversion.

NWS Upton finally pulled the trigger on a high wind warning for eastern Suffolk County on LI as well as s. New London County in se CT.  Would have been better from public awareness perspective to put up a high wind watch 24+ hours ago IMHO. 

They mention gusts up to 65 mph for South Fork and 60 mph North Fork and se coastal CT.  

I think all of Suffolk County (especially near the shores) could see gusts up to ~60 mph, with perhaps locally up to 70 mph on the end of the Twin Forks.

Bit of a lull here for the past couple of hours, light rain here with the heavy stuff to the east and west.

Just over 3” has fallen so far, still some potential to make this the wettest calendar of the year (and in recent years).

dear lord at the bust calls:facepalm: this was a given a break till later tonight.  another 1-2” iso 3” amounts are possible later this evening into early morning

May not end up a bust but I can understand why ppl would think that. After 10 am ish It was a dry day with some breaks of sun today. A lul is one thing. Its not a lul  anymore when it's all day...and not even some light showers or drizzle during the day. Especially compared to the hype it might seem a dud, at least at up to this point. I personally have no problem with that either. I've seen enough flooding this yr.

They issued that this morning. They updated the text this afternoon.
