Hurricane Lee is located about 630 miles east of the northern Leeward Islands.

Fluctuations in intensity are expected, but Hurricane Lee is expected to remain a major hurricane through early next week.

Dangerous surf and rip currents will affect the northern Caribbean and the US. There is uncertainty about whether Hurricane Lee will directly impact the US mainland.

Possible scenarios include Hurricane Lee turning north and staying away from the coast or making a slower turn, bringing it closer to the East Coast.

Factors such as the Bermuda High and the jet stream will determine Hurricane Lee’s path.

Long-range models suggest Hurricane Lee could potentially reach the Maine/Canada border around September 16, although Hurricane Lee is likely to weaken by that time, ABC News reports.

While Hurricane Lee is expected to weaken by the time it reaches the Maine/Canada border, it is still important to take necessary precautions.

The White House has announced that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has already positioned resources in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands and that President Joe Biden has already received a briefing on Thursday about the current situation regarding Hurricane Lee and FEMA’s readiness, ABC News added.
