Tropical Storm Fay is threatening one of the United States’ largest cities – New York. The terrifying weather system formed as the record earliest “F” storm in Atlantic Basin history and is strengthening as it heads towards land.

Tropical Storm Fay formed along the Outer Banks of North Carolina on Thursday, July 9.

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Fay is heading northward just offshore of the Delmarva Peninsula.

Tropical Storm Fay is moving toward the north near 10mph.

In its latest advisory, NOAA placed Tropical Storm Fay 65 miles south southeast of Ocean City, Maryland and 105 miles south of Cape May, New Jersey.

Fay has maximum sustained winds of 50mph, 24mph short of being declared a hurricane.

The minimum central pressure is around 1010 mbar.

According to NOAA, most of the ongoing convection is tied up across the eastern side of the tropical storm, so the low will likely stay just off the coast while drifting north over the next 24 hours.

The main impact, according to Weather.com, will be “localised heavy rainfall from coastal parts of the mid-Atlantic to New England”.

Poor beach conditions and gusty winds are expected along parts of the mid-Atlantic and Northeast coasts.

Flash flood watches have been issued from the Delmarva Peninsula to southern New England.

The Hudson Valley, including the entire New York City Tri-State metro area, as well as the Albany, Hartford and Philadelphia metros are also under the watch.

A Tropical Storm Warning has been issued for portions of the coast from Cape May, New Jersey northward to Watch Hill, Rhode Island, including Long Island and Long Island Sound.

A Tropical Storm Warning means tropical storm conditions are expected somewhere within the warning area within 36 hours.

Tropical storm conditions are expected to first reach the coast within the warning area today and spread northward through the warning area tonight.

According to NOAA, Fay is expected to produce two to four inches of rain with isolated maxima of seven inches along and near the track from the lower Maryland Eastern Shore and Delaware northward into New Jersey, eastern Pennsylvania, southeast New York, and southern New England.

These rains may result in flash flooding where the heaviest amounts occur.

The hurricane centre noted widespread river flooding is not expected at this time.

However, isolated tornadoes are possible today over portions of New Jersey, southeast New York, and southern New England.

NOAA will issued its next intermediate advisory at 8am EDT (13pm BST), and complete advisory at 11am EDT (4pm BST).
