it's creating more winds even farther away from the center of the storm. that's why the wind is going to be whipped on up. also wanted you to notice the temperatures to our south. they're running over 80 degrees. that is some fuel for this storm. if you're thinking, wow, this is pretty incredible, this is a 70-mile-per-hour storm just kind of sitting out in the waters, it is still strengthening because of those warmer water temperatures. and you can see just to our south, we're talking about wave heights up over 20 feet right now and closer on in, we're building those waves as we beaches are closed. we're talking about rough surf, rip currents. the waves are still building at this point. as we get toward later today and tonight, we're talking about 10- to 15-foot seas just offshore. at the time of high tide midday, after 11:00 a.m., there could be with a one- to two-foot surge. i think the biggest thing you'll notice, the winds.
cape. 40-plus. then you get toward the islands, we're gusting over 50 miles per hour. our trees right now pretty vulnerable due to drought conditions over the summer. winds like this as we go into the evening hours and even into tomorrow, they're kicking up. may have localized damage with limbs and branches coming down. through midday, it is mainly dry. as we get into evening and tomorrow morning, we'll have rain. the rain is slow to get in here. there is potential for over an inch in the cape and islands. elsewhere, rainfall amounts will be under an inch. we'll keep hermine around tomorrow as well. tomorrow, a lot of kids heading back to school. boston is heading back. you can see in the morning hours, yeah, there will be some showers around. in fact, we're going to keep the rain around during the day on tuesday, and there's still going to be lingering showers on wednesday. that's why i say hermine's slow to get in here, slow to leave.
