Hurricane Henri’s outer bands are arriving along of coast of eastern Long Island early Sunday.  At 5 am, Henri was located near 40.1 North, 71,2 West, about 80 miles south-southeast of Montauk Point, New York and 120 miles south of Providence, Rhode Island.  Maximum sustained winds were 75 miles per hour, and Henri was moving north at 18 miles per hour.  Hurricane warnings are in effect for most of Long Island, from New Haven, Connecticut to Westport, Massachusetts, and for Block Island, Rhode Island.  Henri will bring dangerous storm surge, damaging winds, and very heavy rain to Long Island and southern New England, beginning early Sunday morning.  This will be the first direct hurricane hit to the region since 1991.

Elsewhere, Grace has dissipated over the mountains of central Mexico.  And the wave in the east Atlantic is interacting with another wave and has a low chance of becoming a depression during the next five days.
