Get ready now! The NYC NWS weather discussion says it all

LARGE AND DANGEROUS HURRICANE IRENE TO IMPACT THE AREA FROM
LATE SATURDAY INTO SUNDAY NIGHT…

OUTER BANDS FROM IRENE SHOULD BEGIN TO IMPACT THE AREA BY SAT
NIGHT. WX WILL DETERIORATE FURTHER ON SUNDAY AS IRENE APPROACHES.
EXPECT WIDESPREAD HEAVY RAINFALL FROM LATE SAT NIGHT THROUGH
SUNDAY…TAPERING OFF SUNDAY NIGHT AS IRENE PULLS AWAY. GIVEN THE
SIZE OF IRENE…DO NOT FOCUS JUST ON THE FORECAST TRACK…AS ITS
LARGE AND DAMAGING WIND FIELD WILL LIKELY ENVELOP MOST OF THE
REGION…EVEN ON THE WEST SIDE OF THE STORM DUE TO ITS RELATIVELY
SLOW FORWARD MOTION. ALL PREPARATIONS FOR HURRICANE IRENE SHOULD
BE COMPLETED BY SATURDAY AFTERNOON…AS STRONGER WINDS/RAINS
STARTING TO ARRIVE SAT NIGHT AND DEFINITELY HERE ON SUNDAY WILL
MAKE IT DIFFICULT IF NOT IMPOSSIBLE TO TAKE ANY ACTION THEN.

MONDAY MORNING THE SYSTEM IS PULLING AWAY FROM THE AREA
