College classes start for me on Tuesday [with most of my friends already starting either last week, or the week before, and they, like I, go to SUNY schools. I hope that doesn't get messed up.

    Re: Hurricane Earl

    What type of storm surge is expected in New York and Boston, and how how high would it have to be to be real problem?

    I know New York City isn't that elevated.

    For Boston Harbor they will have to be pretty high because most of it is elevated. Outside of Boston and on the Cape is probably were more water damage will be from the surge.

    Not much. Rough surf but no real surge. I will be in LBI putting in all my lawn furniture and garbage cans. 45-60mph winds likely. just enough to be annoying.

    Last time a Hurricane came close to the NYC area, it flooded the entire subway system, and people couldn't use it for a few days. I expect the same to happen here. Depends on how much rain is dumped. Hurricanes do hit New York from time to time. 1898 and 1938 were particularly bad ones there.

    Unless Earl cuts to the west of both cities (very unlikely, especially for NYC), neither city will face a significant or worse storm surge.

    I don't think the storm surge is going to be the main problem. On it's present track, the storm will dump enough rain on New York to create some real problems, not deadly, but pretty inconvenient.

    Most of the computer guidance keeps the heavy rains to the east of New York City (consensus guidance is < 0.50" rainfall at NYC), though a small shift in the track could still make a difference. Boston looks wetter, but the heaviest rains are likely on the Cape and Nantucket. Hopefully, NYC will get more rain than what is modeled. It has been a very dry summer and any extra rainfall would be welcome.

    Be careful what you wish for. Stay safe, Y'all. We're watching Gaston which looks like it could track into the Gulf or whack the east coast of Florida.

    The Houston-Galveston area will be completely safe. Our first fall cold front of the year is coming through tomorrow. Atlantic hurricanes never hit the western Gulf after the first cold front. However, there is a possibility that the front could stall out in the Gulf, and a tropical system form on the low attached to it. But, as for the whoppers, we are out of the woods this year.
