Tropical Depression Henri’s Last Gasp on the Seacoast
Henri is not quite done with the Seacoast as it may send more heavy rain before finally leaving the area tonight.
With top winds of 30 mph Tropical Depression Henri on Monday morning slowly made its northwest trek Sunday across Connecticut, Massachusetts and into New York. The storm made its turn and is now heading east, according to National Weather Service meteorologist Michael Clair.
The storm has become rather disorganized as dry air intrudes. In his last gasp Henri will send bands of heavy showers and thunderstorms towards the Seacoast some of which could produce torrential rains through Monday night, Clair told Seacoast Current. The humidity already in place will help feed the storms.
"It's a very moist tropical air mass that we're in so any storms that come through it will likely be raining pretty hard," Clair said.
The storm will clear the New Hampshire coast by early Tuesday morning but heat and humidity will remain in place with temperatures in the 80s to near 90 through at least Thursday.
