The 2013 season’s first tropical system to make landfall on the United States will be Tropical Storm Karen which is forecast to make a glancing blow at Louisiana before coming ashore somewhere along the Alabama or Mississippi coast.  Will the storm have any impact on New York State?

The track shows the storm to work northeasterly once making landfall becoming post-tropical over Georgia.  Our partner site, is forecasting rainfall from Karen over New Jersey.

In New York State, as of Friday afternoon both the NWS offices in Upton (NYC) and Binghamton have included Karen in their long term forecasting discussion.

The remnants could bring heavy rain to the tri-state NYC metro on Monday night while NWS/Binghamton says Upstate may see 1 to 2 inches of rainfall.
