Hurricane Lee near New Hampshire: track, see effects

Hurricane Lee is a strong storm in the Atlantic Ocean, but it’s still too early to tell what impacts it might have here in New England. One thing is for sure – more rip currents and bigger ocean waves are expected in the coming days. According to the National Hurricane Center’s latest advisory, Hurricane Lee is a Category 3 storm with sustained winds of 120 mph. It has a central pressure of 950 millibars and is moving northwest at 7 mph. Lee continues as a major hurricane, turning northward over the northern Leeward Islands, Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico, then east of the Bahamas. Dangerous surf is expected in those areas as well as in the Bahamas and Bermuda early this week. There is a good deal of agreement on a continued move northwesterly over the next few days, but beyond that it is still uncertain how Lee will track through the weekend. While it’s too early to know part of the path and the potential impact on our part of the US or New England, there will at least be some rough surf later this week. Stay tuned for updates on Hurricane Lee’s path and track over the next few days

Lee continues to trek north along the Gulf of Maine, picking up speed. It should make landfall in Nova Scotia after moving east of New Hampshire late Saturday.

As the storm continues to weaken, impacts on the coast will look as expected — strong winds and rough seas on the coast.

Along the coast, expect strong winds, high tides, beach erosion, and the possibility of rain or showers, although the heaviest bands remain offshore and may receive up to a third of an inch of rain.

For the rest of New Hampshire, it will be a breezy day, with showers mainly in eastern areas. There may be sunny intervals in the afternoon.

Wind gusts of up to 40 mph are possible at times along the coast. High surf and rip currents are expected along the coast, which may result in some splash-over and beach erosion. A wind warning is in effect for strong winds in the mountains and north country. Scattered power outages near the coast and in the north are likely with isolated problems elsewhere.
