The impact of Hurricane Earl, which was moving Friday up the East Coast, will be mild for Easton residents.
As of 11 a.m. Friday, the tropical storm watch for coastal Fairfield County had been canceled with Hurricane Earl off the coast of Maryland, moving up the East Coast. The Category 1 storm was predicted to bring rain to Connecticut by the afternoon and into the evening. Winds of 10 to 20 mph are possible.
But the holiday weekend won't be ruined. Saturday, Sunday and Monday are predicted to be sunny and breezy with high temperatures in the 70s.
Although the weather in Easton is not expected to be as unruly as originally anticipated, First Selectman Thomas Herrmann said the Community Room at the Easton Library is usually designated as a safe haven for those looking for shelter.
