Tropical Storm Fay, the sixth—yes, sixth—named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season is bearing down on the Northeast and expected to bring messy weather from Maryland up into southern New England, the National Hurricane Center said this morning. New York, Connecticut, and New Jersey are all under tropical storm warnings. The storm is expected to cause heavy rainfall and high winds in New York City on Friday.
