Hurricane Lee tracker: Follow the storm’s path ahead of arrival off New England coast

Hurricane Lee, a powerful storm that spent 10 days traversing the Atlantic Ocean and briefly attained Category 5 status, made landfall on Friday morning. It will continue to impact eastern New England and Atlantic Canada on Saturday with torrential rain, strong winds, and heavy surf.

AccuWeather’s hurricane expert, Dan Kottlowski, noted that the most severe conditions began to emerge late on Friday as Hurricane Lee continued its path over 100 miles eastward on Saturday morning.

Parts of eastern Maine, southern New Brunswick, and western Nova Scotia are at risk of experiencing hurricane conditions and coastal flooding on Saturday, according to the National Hurricane Center.

The most intense winds are expected between 5 a.m. and 11 a.m. on Saturday, primarily affecting outer Cape Cod through Nantucket, where wind gusts could reach speeds of 55-65 mph. Coastal flooding may persist until early Saturday morning during high tide.

Maine declared a state of emergency as it faced its first hurricane watch in 15 years on Thursday afternoon. Massachusetts Governor Maura Healey also declared a state of emergency on Friday.

Canadian provinces, particularly southern New Brunswick and most of Nova Scotia, have been dealing with hurricane conditions since Friday. The storm’s impact may result in downed trees and potential power outages in these areas.

As the hurricane progresses, you can track its projected path and get updates on its trajectory. The hurricane center relies on various forecast models and tools to provide the most accurate predictions, with the center of the storm potentially traveling outside the cone up to 33% of the time.
