Hurricane Gaston Rough Surf Long Island Beaches

We have been seeing rough surf conditions developing all day long on Long Island South Shore beaches thanks to Hurricane Gaston. You can see the hurricane clearly on the satellite loop as it has a well defined eye. The hurricane has been sitting in roughly the same spot for the last few days so surf issues are likely to continue for the rest of the week and into the weekend. In fact the addition of a tropical depression just east of the North Carolina coast, and eventually the tropical depression in the northeast gulf; this is likely to extend rough surf through the Labor Day holiday weekend. Long Beach in Nassau County has been closed due to rough seas and rip currents. Latest coast guard and buoy reports along and off the south shore are showing wave heights of 4 to 6 feet every 12 seconds or so.

At least from the standpoint of weather this afternoon we have plenty of sunshine with some patchy fair weather clouds. Temperatures are reaching into the 80s. Dew points are in the upper 50s and lower 60s making things rather comfortable.

Wednesday will be warm and humid with highs in the 80s. Wednesday night a cold front will attempt to move through and some showers are indicated overnight into Thursday morning. Because of the tropical zone that is setting up just off shore, the front is going to get hung up for a bit delaying the cooler air. That cooler air will arrive Thursday night and last through the weekend. The GFS model above matches the NAM model which has been signalling this idea for the last few days. The bigger question going forward is what happens with upper air trough and jet stream.

If the upper trough fractures like this and leaves energy behind it will complicate the weather picture for later in the weekend. It still seems to me to be a long shot possibility though this model and Canadian model have been doing this for the last several runs. We will have more on this in a JOESTRADAMUS post later this afternoon.
