Hurricane Hermine will make landfall in Northern Florida tonight. Over the past few days, there have been model inconsistencies (very shocking, we know) regarding where the storm will head next. Even though the track is never set in stone, we can now zoom in on its immediate impacts on our area.

Below there are five zones, A is highest impact, E is slight impact. Here are a few more details.

ZONE A – This area will see significant impacts from Hurricane Hermine. Wind gusts of 40-60+ MPH are expected along with 2.5-5″ of rain. All elevations below 2 feet will see flooding (immediate coastal areas).

ZONE B – This area will see moderate impacts from Hurricane Hermine. Wind gusts of 30-50 MPH are expected along with 1.5-3″ of rain. A 50 mile shift of the track could make a large difference in this region.

Hello, my name is Josh Adams. This year I am a junior in high school in South Central PA. I have had a passion for weather since I was five or six years old, watching the Weather Channel when the average kid my age was watching cartoons. At age 11, I discovered that there is a significant amount of weather info online from knowledgeable meteorologists to weather models and everything in between. I had the privilege to take part in a group that held informational weather discussions nearly everyday. I gained a significant amount of knowledge in several months back in 2012, constantly studying meteorology for hours each and just about every day. I created Northeast Weather Action in early 2013, just after the previous winter had ended. Things were pretty slow to start, however the winter of 2013-2014 greatly helped grow the page. Several of my forecasts verified nicely across the area. I met Chris during that winter in a facebook group, and we talked often about anticipated weather events. Just before the start of the 2014-2015 Winter, I added Chris to Northeast Weather Action (now Pennsylvania Weather Action), and once again we hit several key forecasts. Chris and I are looking forward to giving you the most up to date and reliable forecasts!
