5:15 am
notice the farther north and west you go, the winds drop off. kind of breezy north and west of town. there could be gusts between 30 and 40 miles per hour around the boston area. when does the rain get in? we start to see periods of rain get going this afternoon. so your morning hours are dry here on labor day. rough surf and rip current risk is with us the next several days until hermine gets out of here. we're seeing the seas six-foot seas. 12 feet in the outer cape. this is associated with hermine. and remember, she's going to be pushing north and westward, so that's going to bring those higher waves closer to our coastline, building to about 10 to 15 feet, and so we're watching the next high tide. it's close to noontime. at that time, along south coast, cape and the islands here, our south-facing beaches, there could be a surge of a foot or two, but this does not look like it's going to be producing much

5:31 am
elsewhere around greater boston, winds could gust closer to 40 miles per hour with lighter winds off to the north and west. this storm is still nearly 300 miles away from us, running into high pressure to the north. so in between, that is going to help freshen up the wind as the day wears on. we're seeing some clouds right now, but the rain still pretty far offshore of nantucket. this will back in slowly throughout the day, so by lunchtime, southeastern massachusetts, you may get into some bands of rain. it's going to take until later thiser boston. much of the labor day itself will be dry, but the rain starts to come in late in the day. it's going to be with us the next couple of days as well. notice temperatures today sneaking up close to 70 at the coast, a little warmer inland. this storm again is going to be with us for a while. we'll have the timeline on when it moves out in a bit. the brunt will be felt along the coastline. meteorologist a.j. burnett standing by in chatham this morning. winds starting to pick up out there, a.j.?

5:45 am
seas are really building. 15, 20 feet and higher, and these are lifting towards us. as we get toward this evening, the waves are going to be 10 to 15 feet just offshore. we have a high tide. next one right around lunchtime, after 11:00 a.m. maybe a one- to two-foot surge. that would be the extent of it. the center of the storm 300 miles away, slowly lift northward. the outer rain bands, you can see them e while before those move in. if you have plans on this labor day through lunchtime, you should be dry. in southeastern massachusetts, some showers get in here making their way into boston closer to this evening. then they set up shop tonight. periods of showers continuing on into tuesday as well. it may be wednesday before this gets out of our hair. the potential is there for some needed rain. it should be heaviest in southeastern massachusetts. we don't get rid of hermine until after wednesday.
