you have any outdoor barbecues planned, as we head into sunday and monday, because we're going to be watching the track of hermine very closely, as it does have the potential to start impacting our area as early as sunday and may linger as late as wednesday, but starting sunday, that's when you're really going to start to notice the waves going, rough surf, as well as some rip currents. especially down across our south coast, the cape and island. down to our south, we have clouds in the play, 70's, upper we're in the upper 70's, 79 in fitchburg. it is cooler in boston with that wind off the water, so tonight, if you've got plans, expect 60's with some high clouds out there, and we'll be waking up to temperature in the lower 60's in boston, but inland, you're going to see temperatures fall back into the 50's and 40's. we'll go with mainly clear, although we could see isolated areas of fog. the winds are going to be quite light and for your saturday, we'll notice the clouds increasing from south to north,
5:49 pm
mostly in the 70's, cooler at the coast, and then a touch cooler for sunday as the clouds thicken up, hermine gets a little closer, and it could get close enough that it may start to bring the risk of some showers, especially down across the cape and islands. so the chance of rain will actually increase later on sunday, and then through monday and into tuesday. the extent of how far north the rain goes, all dependent on the track, and it's really going to be a tricky one, because yes, hermine is down across the carolinas right now, providing heavy pressure to our north. that's going to be sliding southward. that may actually suppress the storm to make it stall and stay to our south, but the combination of high pressure to the north and that system trying to move up northward, it is going to allow for the winds to also be quite gusty along our coast, so we've got a lot of things going into play, but the national hurricane center, has issued the latest track, and it does push hermine off of the coast, as we head through the weekend. winds right now, about 50 miles
5:50 pm
and it holds on to tropical storm force through saturday afternoon. now it goes into the open water. we'll have to see if it does intensify. water temperatures in the 80's, but they like that type of water and it may actually increase with its wind speeds and you'll see as it gets a little closer by monday, it may get closer to the coast before then pushing to the east. there's a lot of questions exactly where it will go once it stalls off into just south of new england. so what we could see impacts, high surf and seas, could be talking about seas building 15 to even 20 feet, dangerous rip currents, gusty onshore winds as it will be very similar to a nor'easter. we could be dealing with winds gusting over 40 miles per hour and then possibly locally heavy rain. i think the best chances of that will be closer to the storm to the south, but if this bunches to the north a little bit, we could be dealing with more rain. so if you have plans this weekend, definitely want to pay close attention to the forecast, but the further north you go, the better the chances you will
