Hermine Saturday Update

NHC Forecast Track

NHC Forecast Track

Hermine is now transitioning into a post-tropical storm and currently has max winds of about 55 knots.  Over the next 2-3 days Hermine will re-intensify over warm ocean water and is forecast to regain hurricane strength by early Sunday as it drifts or meanders off the coast.

The slow motion and large wind field will result in a long duration of hazardous conditions along much of the mid-Atlantic coast extending into southern New England through the holiday weekend. hermine3

 

 

The various models still show a high degree of uncertainty, however, most now keep the center offshore.
