Heavy Rain Expected Over Weekend in Huntington

Heavy rain is forecast to hit the Huntington area Saturday, as remnants of Hurricane Ian head to the Northeast.

The National Weather Service said Friday that Long Island could expect 2 to 3 inches of rain and gusting winds starting Friday night and continuing through Sunday. The heaviest rainfall is expected on Saturday, the weather service said.

Some activities, such as a touch a truck event scheduled for the South Huntington Public Library, have already been canceled in anticipation of the rain.

A high-pressure system with low pressure associated from Ian is expected to create strong winds along the Northeast coast, Accuweather said.

“This action will lead to above-normal tides, coastal flooding, beach erosion and dangerous surf conditions from northeastern North Carolina to eastern Massachusetts,” AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Joe Lundberg said.
