DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK ------------------------------ At 500 PM EDT (2100 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Hermine was located by NOAA Doppler radar and surface observations inland over southern South Carolina near latitude 33.0 North, longitude 80.5 West. Hermine is moving toward the northeast near 20 mph (31 km/h) and this motion is expected to continue through Sunday with a gradual decrease in forward speed during that time. On the forecast track, the center of Hermine will move across coastal South Carolina this evening, move across coastal North Carolina tonight and Saturday morning, and move offshore of the North Carolina coast by Saturday afternoon. Maximum sustained winds are near 50 mph (85 km/h) with higher gusts. Little change in strength is expected tonight and early Saturday while the center of Hermine remains over land. Strengthening is forecast after the center moves offshore, and Hermine could be near hurricane intensity by late Sunday. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 185 miles (295 km), mainly to the south and east of the center. A station at Folly Island, South Carolina, recently reported a sustained wind of 44 mph (70 km/h) and a gust of 59 mph (94 km/h). Buoy 41029, located just northeast of Charleston Harbor, recently reported a sustained wind of 40 mph (65 km/h) and a wind gust of 58 mph (94 km/h). The estimated minimum central pressure based on surface observations is 993 mb (29.33 inches). HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND ---------------------- WIND: Tropical storm conditions will continue to spread northward within the warning area along the Atlantic coast through Saturday night. Tropical storm conditions are possible in the watch area by late Sunday or Sunday night. STORM SURGE: The combination of a storm surge and the tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising waters moving inland from the shoreline. There is a danger of life-threatening inundation during the next 24 hours in the Hampton Roads area. Persons within this area should take all necessary actions to protect life and property from rising water. Promptly follow all instructions, including evacuation orders, from local officials. There is also the possibility of life-threatening inundation during the next 48 hours at most coastal locations between the North Carolina/Virginia border and Bridgeport, Connecticut. For a depiction of areas at risk, please see the Prototype Storm Surge Watch/Warning graphic, which displays areas that would qualify for inclusion under a storm surge watch or warning currently under development by the National Weather Service and planned for operational use in 2017. The Prototype Graphic is available at www.hurricanes.gov/graphics_at4.shtml?wsurge The water could reach the following heights above ground if the peak surge occurs at the time of high tide... Hampton Roads area...3 to 5 feet Elsewhere from the NC/VA border to Bridgeport, CT...2 to 4 feet
