lemanowicz has the latest on the timeline that looks to be a lot worse as we progress through the morning, kevin. >> kevin: as long as that storm sits out there and even if it doesn't move toward us at all, bigger and bigger waves. and the winds are blowing across the ocean, and they are way out in the center. the rain is on the northern side and wrapping around the back side. look likes a nor'easter. that is exactly what we are dealing with. a nor'easter type storm. that will continue to push toward us with the rain bands i am expecting this rain to try to continue to advance on us, but it is not having a very good time getting here. it is being eaten by dry air on the northern fringes of the storm. unfortunately the storm will continue to just spin around out there and eventually push toward us with that rain. and here is the rain that is just offshore. heavy rain that is sitting out there. it just keeps trying to rotate on in and not doing very well. winds are 70 miles per hour on the center of the storm moving us to the north at 3 miles per hour. but expected to turn to the
6:32 am
circle around underneath us. we haven't seen this happen yet and it was looking like it would do that for days. waiting for a piece of energy toward the south and make that turn and churning to the south. whether the rain makes its way in here is another story. winds are not gusting with tropical storm strength yet, but they are expected to eventually get here. in the meantime, show you this with the wave height technology. 22-foot waves out here. closer in there, they drop to 16 feet and 8-foot waves already and off of rhode island 10-foot waves. there are some danger with those ocean, and if the rain will make it farther inland. >> that is what we will have to keep close tabs on. labor day and people want to be outside with their barbecue. hour by hour, north shore forecast, mostly cloudy skies. and not much rain. it might be late day before some of those ocean showers try to pivot ashore along the north shore.

6:34 am
bit choppier. again, certainly not seeing the most intense part of the storm as tropical storm hermine is coming closer, but, again, you can see those waves being whipped around by the water right now, and because of that, the coast guard is preparing for any sort of emergency situation here out on the water. we are here at the chatham fish pier. what they are saying is that, again, these high winds and the big waves, of course, could make for very dangerous situations for swimmers and surfers, but they are also dangerous situations for boaters as well, and in fact we were there yesterday as the crew with the coast guard boarded one of their boats and was told to check these wind conditions, because, again, the one is really causing all of those waves to whip around. they are asking poet boaters to secure their boats and even yet get them out of the water and they say if you plan to head out on the water today, make sure that you are prepared.
6:35 am
equipment and sound and life jackets and if the weather will be too much for your boat and you don't need to go out, if it is unnecessary, don't go out. >> reporter: that is what we are saying. please do not put yourself in any kind of dangerous situation if you don't have to. don't go out on the water if you don't have to. they are on standby and ready to work with any emergency situation. they have been working with the local harbor masters and storm plans as well. we will be out here all morning long. again the story of the moment is just the wind and the waves that are really churning up. other issues we are not seeing at this point in time. we will have another live report for you coming up in 15 minutes. in chatham, i am stephanie coueignoux, fox25 news. and to our south, hermine is taking a look at many of the places devastated by super storm sandy. beaches from the jersey shore to nantucket are closed and residents are preparing for
