Hurricane Lee to saturate New England

The good news is that Hurricane Lee is weakening and will keep doing so before making landfall near the U.S.-Canada border. The bad news is that it will bring dangerous winds and a massive amount of water to areas that are already saturated from heavy rainfall this summer.

"Regardless of Lee's designation when it approaches New England and Atlantic Canada, it will remain a very large and dangerous cyclone through landfall," the National Hurricane Center said on Thursday.

Here are the latest things to know about Lee:

New England is under watches and warnings

Parts of Maine and Canada are under a hurricane watch, meaning hurricane conditions are possible within 48 hours. The alert is in effect from Stonington, Maine, to Canada's New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.
