DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK ------------------------------ At 1000 PM CDT (0300 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Hermine was located near latitude 25.8 North, longitude 87.0 West. Hermine is moving toward the north-northeast near 10 mph (17 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 NOAA and Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate that maximum sustained winds have increased to near 60 mph (95 km/h) with higher gusts. Additional strengthening is forecast during the next 24 to 36 hours, and Hermine is expected to be a hurricane by the time landfall occurs. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 125 miles (205 km) from the center. The minimum central pressure reported by an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft is 998 mb (29.47 inches).
HURRICANE WARNINGS & GFS MODEL ANALYSIS
Given that the recon fixes were a little to the east models have adjusted to the east however be advised that this is an unusual and fluid situation here. We could see adjustments left or right going forward. As far as our area is concerned this will all depend on how the storm reacts to the upper low that develops to the west.
Tonight’s run takes the tropical storm to the northeast off Northeastern North Carolina and offshore and then hooks it back westward putting it in very close proximity to the coasts of New Jersey and Long Island. This would create coastal flooding and beach erosion issues since it takes another day or so for the tropical storm on this model to be ejected to the northeast.
These are the latest spaghetti plots which have shifted east on this run to mostly offshore tracks though some are a bit unusual in how they move this. We will have more in the morning when we will see the European, Canadian and mid run GFS and NAM models.
