Tropical Depression LEE

Hoboken is in the northeast – NOT the tropics!

It’s definitely way too soon for any “tropical moisture” to come our way after Hurricane Irene ravaged much of the town.

For now, it still seems as if Hurricane Katia will probably turn away before affecting us, and forecasters are up in the air about where the buckets of rain from now Tropical Depression Lee will go. So be on the lookout for between zero and lots of inches of rain over the next couple days.

Lee may make bring unwanted soaking to East Coast

9/3/2011:

Wow – Tropical Storm Lee is amazing. A churning minor tropical storm down in the Gulf of Mexico, that’s not necessarily a threat to anyone because of fierce winds – but rather the colossal amount of rain it’s delivering because of the extremely slow, almost stationary movement.

Some places in Louisiana might get two feet of rain over the next couple days. Have you ever seen a forecast like this? It would wipe Hoboken off the map for certain.

What impact will LEE have up north? The Hoboken Italian Festival?

While Lee will lose his “Tropical Storm” status soon, forecast tracks for the remnants & moisture over the next week are still uncertain. The National Weather Service thinks much of it will trudge up to the northeast, bringing several inches of rain to already soaked areas battered by Hurricane Irene.

The bulk of the rain seems to be on the west side, so pray Lee doesn’t move too far east as it rides up the coast next week.

Hopefully, the Hoboken Italian Festival on the waterfront this week doesn’t require umbrellas.
