I’m tracking Earl on the long range radar from Long Island and based on the current trajectory I think it will pass just right of the NHC track off of Nantucket. One buoy to the north (44066) of the center in the heavy rain shield of Earl had a wind gust to 55 mph. Not exactly impressive .
For the past 2 or 3 days I’ve expected minimal impacts, at best, and now it looks even more minimal with winds of 15 to 20 mph in most of the west of I-91 and light rainfall. Eastern Connecticut could pick up 1″-3″ as the heaviest rain pivots over the I-395 corridor. New London county could register a wind gust to 35 or 40 mph, but that will be the exception rather than the rule.
No big deal, as expected.
