Will Tropical Storm Fay Affect Maine?
According to WMTW, the strength of Tropical Storm Fay increased overnight. Currently, it has winds of about 50 miles per hour and is tracking north at about 10 miles per hour.
The storm is expected to dump massive amounts of rain on New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. However, unless it changes course, it should pass west of Maine.
We can still expect to feel some of the storm's effects, though. We can expect rain much of the south and central parts of the state from Saturday morning through late afternoon on Saturday. Some places could receive as much as an inch and a half of rain.
Fortunately, most of the stronger winds will remain west of the state.
Of course, there is a chance that we could see a greater impact from the storm if it changes to a more eastward course.
