Hurricane Lee Could Impact Weather In New York
Millions of people along the East Coast are bracing for the impact of Hurricane Lee and it looks like they could feel the impact here in New York.
While it is still early to predict where Hurricane Lee will hit, some models show that the path of the Hurricane could end up coming up to the coast and bringing heavy rain and winds to New York State.
Most of the models do have Lee staying out East in the ocean but if it does make an impact along the East Coast, it wouldn't be the first time a hurricane impacted New York State.
