6:32 am
a-right now, what's going to be interesting here over the next couple of days, and starting with this afternoon is with the repeated tides coming in, not running terribly high astronomically speaking. but still, we're going to go through a series of high tides where hermine is still sitting down to the south of new england, and so what that does is kind of open this area up, which you know is susceptible to the coastal beach erosion, and beach erosion, and we'll see the coastline changing here, a bit as hermine continuing churning to the south. as cindy mentioned there is a band of rain trying to pivot in from the east, still about a couple of hours away, although it is about 25 miles off the shore. it's not making a lot of progress in getting here. the wind again up to 30 miles per hour, and it will get liar from here gradually as we head through this mid-day and the

6:45 am
evening we could be talking about gusts between 40 and 50 miles per hour here on the south coaster, the cape and the islands, and lesser wind the farther north and west you go but this is where we have the tropical storm warnings for that reason, so wind is one issue. we'll get into rain bands, as well, especially later today and tonight and those will continue off and on into tuesday, as well. coastal flooding not a big issue but the rough surf, the rip current risk, that is huge, the seas are building. we're getting nine, 10-foot seas. but to the south, look at the surge of wave action is lifting northward here as hermine comes north, so 10 to 15, and close to 20-foot seas off the shore. not out of the question here through later today and into tomorrow. and at the time of the high tide, just around mid-day, we could have minor splash, a one to two-foot surge. the center of the storm nearly 300 miles away, but already the clouds, and you can see those outer rain bands getting closer to nantucket now. we'll see some of those come in
