Hurricane Ian’s remnants will soak parts of the New York area this weekend

Hurricane Ian could bring plenty of rain to the New York area this weekend as it heads north and weakens over the Appalachian region.


After brutalizing Florida as a Category 4 hurricane, Ian is slated to make a second landfall in South Carolina on Friday and arrive in Virginia, West Virginia and Kentucky by 8 p.m. as a tropical storm or weaker, National Weather Service meteorologist Joe Pollina told The News.

“It will weaken to less than tropical storm status by then,” Pollina said from the NWS’ Long Island office. “The highest amounts of rainfall that we’re forecasting is for southern and eastern Long Island.”

Just under 2 inches of rain is forecast across eastern Long Island. Some bands of heavier rain were possible, he said.

Hurricane Ian could bring plenty of rain to the New York area this weekend.

“In [New York] City we’re looking at 1 to 1½ inches,” Pollina said. There’s still some uncertainty as to where exactly the heavier rain will be. The heaviest rain could fall offshore, or it could push further inland, bringing even more rain to Long Island.”

Showers will linger into next week, Pollina added, with temperatures expected to be in the low 60s for the weekend and winds gusting 30 to 40 mph.

“A little windy but nothing too serious,” Pollina said.
