The Tropical Storm Watch was discontinued for Suffolk County. Swells generated by the storm will continue to affect the shores, causing dangerous surf and rip current conditions for the next several days. Eastern Long Island is expected to experience gusty winds throughout the day, as the storm moves east conditions will improve.
