(WTXL) — Tropical Storm Henri's forecast movement this weekend can create problems for some mid-Atlantic and northeastern states.
The tropical storm is located about 800 miles south of Nantucket, Mass., and is moving west-northwest at 8 mph.
Its highest winds are estimated at 65 mph.
Tropical Storm Henri (pronounced ahn-REE) will start a turn north Friday while off the coast of the Carolinas.
The forecast track parallels the Atlantic coast through the weekend as a hurricane. Henri may approach sections of southern New England with higher surf, gustier winds, and other storm effects.
