It's expected to bring rough surf and coastal flooding, along with bands of heavy rain and damaging winds.
Shoreline residents of the C-and-I are being urged to take extra precautions for the storm surge expected as Hurricane Lee passes by this weekend.
he National Weather Service says a life-threatening storm surge of two to four feet could lead to localized flooding in some low-lying areas, with the window of greatest concern from Friday evening to Saturday afternoon.
