Henri accelerates toward southern New England
Henri officially became a hurricane according to the National Hurricane Center's 11 AM Saturday advisory. Tropical storm warnings are posted for southeastern Massachusetts, Martha's Vineyard / Nantucket, and west of New Haven, CT to Port Jefferson Harbor, NJ, which also includes New York City. Hurricane warnings are posted from Westport, MA to New Haven, and includes Block Island.
Satellite image of Henri through 3 PM shows acceleration of the storm offshore of the Carolinas and parallel to the DelMarVa peninsula, well west of land for now. An upper-level trough is on pace to steer Henri towards Long Island and southern Connecticut, with landfall expected late afternoon on Sunday. The storm will run into cooler ocean waters before making landfall, then slow to a crawl over central Connecticut, advancing into western Massachusetts early Monday.
