September Starts With Rain And Tropical Storm Hermine

September Starts With Rain And Tropical Storm Hermine

Screen Shot2016-09-01 06_28_07Thursday September 1 – A cold front brought slow moving storms overnight that dropped over 2 inches of rain in spots. There are more bands of rain on the way today and the lingering effects of cooler air should keep us in the 70s through the weekend. That also comes with the looming threat of Tropical Storm Hermine. This is in the Gulf of Mexico and is expected to reach hurricane status by the time it makes landfall on Florida’s big bend. The track after that is the tricky part, but still keeps the risk of rain for the Mid Atlantic over the weekend.  Our best chance for impact will be Saturday night into Sunday. Below is a quick look at the forecast maps.

Tropical Storm Hermine

The short version of this: Should make landfall on Florida as a hurricane, then weaken to a tropical storm again. An inland track could pass through the southern Chesapeake Bay or just south, then linger off of the coast. The GFS Model is just one scenario and slight adjustments could bump the track and rain impact. Almost certainly this will impact the beaches with rain and dangerous surf.
