Henri made landfall close to Westerly, Rhode Island Sunday evening at roughly 12:15 p.m. Incredibly, this is just about precisely the same area where Tropical Storm Elsa made landfall recently. Prior to this year, we hadn’t had a landfalling hurricane in 15 years (Beryl in 2006 on Nantucket). Hopefully that will be the remainder of the landfalls this year.
Winds finished out at 78 miles each hour at Point Judith, Rhode Island and 68 mph in Newport and Block Island. Pinnacle blasts in Massachusetts remembered 55 mph for Falmouth, 54 mph in Westport and a few other between 45-to-55 mph.
The heaviest precipitation from this point forward will happen in western New England and eastern New York, to one side of Henri’s track. Portions of that space will get 5-to-10 crawls of downpour no matter what.
Truth be told, with some upsloping in the heights in New York State, its not impossible that limited precipitation aggregates could top a foot! Obviously, there will be some significant flooding issues in eastern New York. Western Connecticut and western Massachusetts should get away from the most noticeably awful of the substantial downpour and flooding, however this should be firmly checked (subject to how far west the focal point of Henri moves inland).
We aren’t totally free and clear in focal and eastern Massachusetts as the remainders of Henri will get cleared up by a front Monday evening a lot bringing one final round of deluges through the space.
In the event that it hasn’t been the downpour, the climate story has been the warmth. This is additionally at present the hottest summer on record in Boston! The normal temperature of 74.5 degrees is 0.4 degrees hotter than the summers of 1983 and 1949 (tied for number two on the rundown). Likely not an ideal summer for pretty much anybody inspired by outside exercises.
Once more, hopefully that we have said a final farewell to the tropical action in New England this year. We actually haven’t had a landfalling typhoon here since Bob in 1991, we should keep it that way.
