Hermine Monday Update

NOAA NHC Track Forecast

NOAA NHC Track Forecast

Hermine remains a post-tropical cyclone with max winds estimated at 60 knots and continues to drift slowly towards the north or northeast, however blocking high pressure to the north should steer Hermine more towards the northwest during the next 24-36 hours before again turning  northeast. A gradual weakening is also expected to develop after 24 hours.  There are 2 models that still bring Hermine back west including the NAM model while most keep it offshore while a couple bring it over or close to Cape Cod or Nantucket Island.
