Rain, gusty winds and strong surf are likely on Long Island over Labor Day weekend thanks to Hurricane Hermine, forecasters said. Uncertainty remains over the exact timing and potential local impact of the storm, which may pass south of Long Island, but the National Weather Service (NWS) issued a hazardous weather outlook Thursday for the New York Metro area, warning that Hermine may impact the region with heavy rain and strong winds over the holiday weekend.
More wet weather is expected through the weekend, meteorologists said.
The National Weather Service said up to 3 inches of rain is expected on LI through Friday.
But forecasters are warning swimmers about the threat of rip tides from the storm.
