The hurricane that seemed headed for Connecticut Monday now appears to be staying out at sea, according to Gary Lessor, Assistant to the Director of Meteorological Studies and the Weather Center at Western Connecticut State University.
The hurricane is not expected to make landfall, based on the latest models. That means it won’t  move inland up to New York and Connecticut Monday night.
There will be no rain associated with the hurricane, since it is staying out to sea. There will be rain Friday afternoon and evening but not because of the storm. It will amount to about a quarter of an inch, Lessor said.
