Hurricane Hermine is a slow monster that will drop 15 inches of rain in Florida while pushing up almost 6 feet of storm surge onto the beaches and roads. Then it is going to continue through Florida over Georgia and over North and South Atlantic as it hooks back into New Jersey New York and Boston.


Stay cool.

God bless everyone,

Hurricane Hermine is expected to make landfall tonight as a Category 1.

Heavy rain, storm surge flooding and high winds will sweep ashore through early Friday.

A tornado watch is also in effect until 11 p.m. EDT for portions of northern and central Florida.

The system will then spread up the coast to the Carolinas Friday and Saturday.

Parts of the mid-Atlantic and Northeast coastline may see significant impacts from Hermine after it becomes a non-tropical area of low pressure.

Hurricane Hermine is a Category 1 hurricane and only a couple of hours away from landfall along Florida's Gulf Coast. Bands of heavy rain have already moved inland, and hurricane-force winds are now coming ashore. Life-threatening storm surge flooding will continue to increase through the night. Tornadoes will also be a threat.Hurricane warnings continue for a swath of north Florida, extending inland to include the city of Tallahassee. This means hurricane-force winds (at least 74 mph) are expected for a period of time in the warned area. Various tropical storm warnings also continue from parts of Florida to North Carolina.

Hermine will likely become a non-tropical low by this weekend and will hover near or off the Northeast seaboard, potentially resulting in strong winds, coastal flooding and other impacts. A tropical storm watch is now in effect as far north as coastal parts of New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland as well as the Virginia Tidewater since the low may still have significant impacts. For more details on what may happen in the Northeast,Winds gusted over 75 mph early Thursday evening near Indian Shores Beach in western Pinellas County. Winds have gusted as high as 53 mph in Apalachicola ahead of Hermine's landfall. Winds gusted to 76 mph at C-Tower, south of St. George Island, Thursday evening.

Wind gusts of 52 mph occurred at Keaton Beach and Clearwater Beach later Thursday evening, and a 51 mph gust was measured at Cedar Key.

Gusts 62 mph at St. Petersburg's Albert Whitted Airport and near Clearwater Beach were also ed Thursday evening, and 30-40 mph gusts extended as far south as Naples, Florida. These winds prompted the closure of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge.Infrared satellite imagery, scatterometer data and observations from the Hurricane Hunters show Hermine is continuing to organize, but much of the heavy rainfall is on the east side of the system closer to the Florida panhandle.

Thunderstorms are now sprouting around the core circulation of Hermine, a sign that it will continue to gain strength before landfall.
