not looking at many downpours but will be broken up. rain, rip currents and beach erosion. not just a concern today, but because hermine is moving so little in the next two days, it is going to be an ongoing affair. this is something that we will have to watch wednesday, and although we will see late week improvements, we will have decent waves out there. a look at current wind speeds. right now i have 21 miles per hour sustained in boston. sustained at 20 miles per hour yes, it was windier yesterday. it was windier overnight and still maintaining some of the stronger gusts. i just broke down the winds about 5 minutes ago. out toward the vineyard 31-mile-per-hour gusts. that is one of the spots we will be watching for the tropical storm-strength gusts. in the last 24 hours, we have seen winds gusting for nantucket -- nantucket shoals up around 64 miles per hour. nawas the strongest report that i have but over the cape,
50-mile-per-hour range. the good news is, a lot of those strong, strong gusts are going to be object sent from the map today and still see some gusts around 30 miles per hour. with it bands of rain coming in all pivoting around hermine which is a post tropical storm which means it lost some of its tropical characteristics and still a big wind maker out there. you can see all of the oranges denoting the thunderstorm warnings posted. current winds attached to hermine, 64 expected over the next couple of days. you will see a wobble a little bit here just to the south. through 8:00 we still have spot showers. we still have winds coming in mostly from the east, pushing the water into the coastline. and noontime, scattered showers. futurecast is placing certain bands in certain locations throughout the day, but you really need to be ready for occasional shower. you will want to grab that umbrella.
roads. hermine doing its thing to the south but barely moving. during the day, 7 a.m., a very similar set-up to what we have today and we will have scattered showers, we will have winds coming on shore as well and then she starts to move off to the north and east, and by 8 p.m., she is going to lose a lot of her characteristics, meaning we might stop tracking her as hermine. it might just end up being the remnants that we watch kind of move away from us for week. temperatures today are going to be in the low to mid-70s. overnight 60s tomorrow with breezy conditions, occasional showers. it will be a little warmer. we are going upper 70s to about 8 degrees. the seven-day forecast with the weekend always in view. showers hanging on thursday morning. turn hot and humid. 86 on thursday. near 90 on friday with a chance of early morning showers along this front and more breaks of sunshine as we ease our way into saturday at
