A notice issued by the National Hurricane Center at 11 p.m. on Saturday shows the storm is still a Category 1 hurricane with winds of 75 mph. At the time, the storm was 180 miles south of Montauk.

Torrential rains began to pound in New York City on Saturday night, with 2.15 inches of rain falling in Central Park and even higher amounts in Brooklyn and Queens.

The rain did not come from the outer bands of Henri, but rather it was tropical moisture that was nourished by the hurricane.

A flash flood warning is in place in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Nassau County. The risk of flooding will persist overnight with sustained heavy tropical rainfall.

Traveling to the areas under the flash flood warning will be very difficult.

A flash flood warning is also in effect in the Bergen, Essex, and Hudson counties of New Jersey through 2:15 p.m. Sunday.

As for the hurricane itself, the last trace shifted further east. It now shows that Henri’s center is missing the twin forks, but the cone still envelops the East End.

It’s important to note that the effects of the storm can be felt well outside the cone, whether the center is overland or just offshore.

Winds are expected to be a major factor in the storm the further east you go, with gusts of 80 to 90 miles per hour.
