Hermine Threat NYC New Jersey Long Island
Tropical Storm Warnings For Both Coasts of Florida
Weather models this afternoon continue to converge on a solution regarding Hermine. The general idea is that this tropical storm will move off the North Carolina coast Saturday night and head northeast until it comes to a crashing halt somewhere east of Cape May New Jersey and South of Montauk during Sunday. The storm will then make a westward hook in an attempt to make some sort of a loop that may take a day or two to play out.
As of right now no direct landfall is expected however having a strong Tropical Storm sitting a position just offshore will produce stormy conditions for Long Island and Southernmost New England to New York City and then southward across Central and Southern New Jersey southward to along the Middle Atlantic Coast.
The GFS model sequence above is the most aggressive. All the models have this idea in some form with positioning being the issue. The implications of this type of track would be for wind and rain to being along coastal New Jersey Saturday and the spread to New York City Long Island and Southern New England by Sunday morning. Sunday we will see according to the gfs winds of gale force with gusts to 50 mph or more possible. I think that coastal New Jersey could fare worse in terms of time since the storms loop effects that coastline for a longer period of time.
Rainfall amounts of 2 to 4 inces will occur on the northern fringe with lesser amounts as you go north into Northwest New Jersey and the Hudson Valley with 4 to 6 inch or higher amounts to the south. This potentially could be a drought breaker if this northernmost track holds.
Some models transition this into a hybrid type storm for awhile before turning it purely tropical again after the southward drift. The European model strongly implies this. Such a transition could change the profile some but we will deal with that when we get there.

DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK ------------------------------ At 1200 PM CDT (1700 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Hermine was located near latitude 27.8 North, longitude 85.6 West. Hermine is moving toward the north-northeast near 14 mph (22 km/h), and this motion with a slight increase in forward speed is expected during the next day or so. On the forecast track, the center of Hermine will be near the Florida coast in the hurricane warning area tonight or early Friday. Maximum sustained winds are near 70 mph (110 km/h) with higher gusts. Additional strengthening is anticipated, and Hermine is expected to be a hurricane by the time landfall occurs. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 185 miles (295 km), mainly to the northeast and southeast of the center. The estimated minimum central pressure is 989 mb (29.21 inches). This Special Advisory replaces the intermediate advisory that would have been issued at 100 PM CDT.
