THE FORECAST FOR HURRICANE HERMINE HAS BEEN UPDATED SINCE THE RELEASE OF THIS ARTICLE. SEE THE LATEST UPDATE BY CLICKING HERE.

As we get closer and closer to the time period we are watching (Saturday through Monday), the more clear it is becoming that much of our local beaches and even a good portion of PA will be impacted by Tropical Storm Hermine this Weekend.

Over the last 48 hours, guidance has continued the trend NW putting much of the area in the line of fire. With that being said, we are still 72+ hours away from impact…there is still time for some wiggle room.

Here is our latest Forecast: TROP UPDATE 8 31

This is a significant shift Northwest from our previous forecast.

Areas in pink: Over 6″ of rainfall is possible with winds reaching over 65 mph, widespread power outages is likely. Storm surge over several feet is possible.

Areas in red: Over 4″ of rainfall is possible, with winds reaching over 50 mph, widespread power outages is possible. Storm surge over several feet is possible.

FOR A CLOSER LOOK OF OUR COVERAGE AREA:TROP UPDATE LOCAL 8 31

We hate to say it, but cancelling your weekend plans to the beach is probably the better decision as of now. This forecast over the last 2 days has trended worse and worse, unless it does a complete 180, the area is in for a washout this weekend, with significant storm surge for coastal locations.
Eastern PA there is the possibility for scattered power outages. Widespread power outages as you head to the coastal areas. The worst of the time-frame stated on the map, looks to be Sunday.
