For storm information specific to your area, including possible inland watches and warnings, please monitor products issued by your local National Weather Service forecast office. DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK ------------------------------ At 700 PM CDT (0000 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Hermine was located near latitude 25.5 North, longitude 87.4 West. Hermine is moving toward the north-northeast near 8 mph (13 km/h), and this motion with an increase in forward speed is expected to continue through Thursday. On the forecast track, the center will be near the coast in the warning area Thursday night. Recent reports from a NOAA Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate that maximum sustained winds have increased to near 50 mph (85 km/h) with higher gusts. Additional strengthening is forecast during the next 36 hours, and Hermine could be near hurricane strength by the time landfall occurs. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 125 miles (205 km) from the center, mainly to the east and southeast. The minimum central pressure reported by a NOAA Hurricane Hunter aircraft is 1001 mb (29.56 inches).
The late afternoon GFS run was very similar to the previous run as it takes Hermine to Southern New Jersey from Coastal North Carolina before it begins an eastward drift. What is not known at the moment is how much energy it will derive from the upper air storm it will be involved with.
