The latest projected track of Tropical Storm Hermine suggests it may not be a sunny and pleasant weekend after all.
The current streak of hot and humid days is ending. It will remain warm and muggy tonight with lows between 68 and 74 degrees. Isolated showers will be possible tomorrow as a cold front crosses the area. We’re forecasting partly sunny skies with highs in the lower to middle 80s. Right now, Friday is looking very nice with mostly sunny skies and highs only in the lower 80s. Cloudiness could increase late Friday in response to the fringes of Tropical Storm Hermine.
The Saturday and Sunday portion of the Labor Day Weekend are not looking sunny and pleasant any longer. The reason is newly named Tropical Storm Hermine in the Gulf of Mexico. Computer model simulations are trending the storm and it’s clouds and it’s rain and it’s gusty winds farther west than before. If this trend turns out to be accurate, then the weekend could wind up being rather unsettled with showers and gusty breezes and the beaches could be just downright awful.
The Tropical Storm will make landfall around midnight tomorrow night on Florida’s upper Gulf Coast. It is then expected to spread very heavy rain northeastward through Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and then perhaps Delmarva and perhaps to all or part of our area. It’s too early to be certain but not too early to factor all this information into your weekend plans. The StormWatch7 Weather Team will keep you well informed…on air and on line.
