Post Tropical Storm Hermine continues to spin to our south as it slowly weakens. It will meander south of Long Island over the next couple of days before finally exiting New England waters by Friday.
It was a bit breezy this afternoon under mostly cloudy skies. We have seen a shower or two, and continue to keep a shower in the forecast overnight. Unfortunately, we aren't expect anything more than a few hundredths of an inch of rain. We need the rain but we are not going to get enough to help with the drought. Winds will remain out of the northeast between 10-20 mph.
As Hermine continues to weaken, tomorrow will feature clouds but also some sun with warm and muggy conditions. There may be another shower or two as it remains rather breezy.
Impacts from Hermine will continue to be felt along the beaches of CT, RI and the Cape. Fortunately for the coastal locations, it will not be as windy as yesterday. All Tropical Storm Warnings have been dropped, but a High Surf Advisory is in place.
Especially at risk for rip currents are the east and south facing beaches, as they are exposed to the biggest impacts from Hermine.
High pressure builds in as Hermine departs on Thursday. By Thursday, it will be hot and somewhat muggy with temperatures near 90! A weak front will drop humidity levels a bit for Friday but it will stay hot with temperatures still near 90. Summer isn't quite done with us just yet.
