These hybrid type systems tend to be tricky in regards to the weather they produce. As mentioned this week in previous blogs, I am calling this a “Zipper Low” only because it will zip up the coast from North Carolina to New England Saturday.

The impacts will be felt from New Jersey into New England with Long Island taking the brunt of the wind and rain issues. It does appear that the storm will coming at the time of high tide early Sunday morning which is 4:22 am at Fire Island as an example which means possible beach erosion and over-wash on the south-facing beaches.

Impacts as shown on the map above will be wind gusts over 40 mph and a period of heavy rain.
