edgartown, east falmouth, plymouth, 44 miles per hour. all of the tropical storm strength wind gusts that we've been seeing. around the center, it's 70 miles per hour. the forecast track now is to push off to the northwest, then the variability comes into play. will it come farther to the east an make a landfall, so to speak in southern new england, or it will go farther out to sea. they're still the variability, because it's moving so slowly. we know for sure it's going to continue northwest tonight. but then a turn to the north expected, northeast, but this takes you into the day evening, coming very close to nantucket, at least the center is. don't think of it as a tropical storm making landfall. it's going to be the center of a storm system moving on through during that time period, 40-mile-per-hour winds reducing to 30 miles per hour by thursday afternoon. these are estimates, based on computer models remember, because we have to keep watching the storm and tracking it from this point on. it's been going back and forth wobbling, rather than take a
6:50 pm
computer charts to put it together. show you the spaghetti plot and they're all over the place in here, but they basically keep it in this region and exited on thursday to the northeast and that certainly is good news. we'll get rid of it finally. the dangerous surf and seas will continue through thursday, even as the storm departs, the waters take a little while to calm down. the oceans have a memory and they remember the winds and keep the waves going until it pulls away from a far distance. reports of trees down and power outages, we've had that this evening. we've been reporting on it in the islands. once we get rid of the storm thursday, we will warm up in the wake as the sun pops out thursday in to friday. another chance for the showers over the weekend. nothing to do with hermine. we'll keep tracking that storm tonight and of course i'll have the latest for you at 10:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. >> very sunny in california. the red sox in san diego for the start much a three game set. dustin pedroia clearly ready for this one. we're going to update the action from petco park and norton was

6:55 pm
we're engaged ever gaged in a one-on-one -- we're engaged in a one-on-one battle. casey, this was the kind of day he had. just misses. can't believe it. this was the day for rory mcilroy. third shot on 18 out of the sand, and that's going to be a gimme for the birdie. finished the round up two and that's exactly how it ended much rory mcilroy's first win on the pga tour since may of 2015. >> i was always positive going into that, to today, i thought it was a long shot, thought i could really give it a good go. there's certain courses you go through on the tour that you just know you'll play well or you have a good chance of playing well an winning. hopefully this is one of them. i hope to come back to boston each year and have a chance to win. >> it was a fantastic weekends of college football. to me, the most touching moment happened in nebraska. the cornhuskers lot their punter, sam foltz in a tragic
6:56 pm
they lined up in missing man formation without a punter on the field. it was their way to honor foltz. players on both sides cheered, both sides did. fresno state declined the penalty. that's a chilling and emotional way to honor a young man taken far too soon, loved by so many people and you can see how moving that moment was in nebraska on saturday night. >> vanessa: yeah. >> mark: that's. >> kevin: that's a nice moment, hard to follow that up. show you a forecast. this is what you're rain bands coming on through but in between the bands, much like you saw today off the northwest, breaks of sun, so it's going to be one of those days, but this system is going to push toward us eventually on wednesday and into thursday and exit88?k? on f here. it is a powerful storm right now, will weaken over the colder waters and i'll have the latest track and strength coming in for you tonight.
