DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
At 500 PM EDT (2100 UTC), satellite imagery indicated that the
center of Tropical Storm Fay has made landfall along the coast of
New Jersey about 10 miles (15 km) north-northeast of Atlantic City,
near latitude 39.5 North, longitude 74.3 West. Fay is moving
toward the north near 14 mph (22 km/h). A northward to north-
northeastward motion at a faster forward speed is expected tonight
and Saturday. On the forecast track, the center of Fay will move
near or over portions of the New Jersey coast this evening and then
move inland over southeastern New York and western New England
tonight and Saturday.
Maximum sustained winds are near 50 mph (85 km/h) with higher
gusts. Additional weakening is expected tonight, especially after
the Fay moves farther inland. Fay is expected to weaken to a
tropical depression by Saturday morning and dissipate on Sunday.
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 185 miles (295 km),
mainly to the northeast and southeast of the center. A Weatherflow
site at Larchmont Harbor, New York, recently reported a sustained
wind of 35 mph (56 km/h) and a wind gust of 41 mph (67 km/h). JFK
airport in New York City recently reported a wind gust of 45 mph
The estimated minimum central pressure is 998 mb (29.47 inches).
