12:02 pm
it looks better organized than the satellite and radar presentation. likely to become a category one hurricane just before landfall. the forecast consistent. the pattern is consistent through basically, the north carolina coastline. notice how tight that cone is. once you get beyond that, we are talking sunday, monday, and tuesday. look at the spread. that is because this system gets cut off. high pressure to the north blocks it. right now, most indications are that it gets blocked off. maybe a couple hundred miles south of new england. and could days before sliding back out to sea. how close it gets to new england will really dictate how much wind and rain we see. i do at least expect some rain out of this coming in here beginning late sunday into monday itself. if it stays far south in that track, we have the chance of some rain. in terms of wind speeds, if it gets a little bit closer there, we could have some gusts. 40-50 miles an hour for the cape and the islands: astronomically low tide.

12:14 pm
12:14. we have been covering this storm system that will give us rain possibly. >> christa: active in the tropics this time of year, isn't it? this could bring some rain to our area. >> chris: late sunday, sunday night into monday. the potential for some rain moving on. in still a long way to go to get there. here is the storm. tropical storm hermine. moving toward the northern half of florida. more specificly, mere the big bend area. and over toward apalachicola. likely, making landfall late
12:15 pm
hurricane. typically, when we see storms make a northeasterly turn, they continue on that path. the issue this go-round is that we have strong canadian high pressure building in. and it is almost going to bridge off this path out to sea. with this area of high pressure. so the high pressure blocks it from going out to sea. and with that in mind, this storm will slow down significantly if not stall and kind of loop around and wobble around. of new england and just off the mid-atlantic coastline. so it's critical see where that cutoff is. where this stalls out. if it is close to the coastline, then we have to introduce gusty winds as well as, you know, more consistent rains. farther off to the south, then we are talking minimal impacts in terms of some little rain and just a few breezy conditions out there at times. now, there is a wide range of opportunity, you know, for that forecast to go awry in
12:16 pm
the reason for that is where does this area of high pressure block off and stall out? it is very tight the next few days. until you get off the carolina coastline. then this becomes a circle. that is huge wide margin of error. most of the models have been consistent the last day or so. keeping this right around here in the area. a couple hundred miles south of us. nast would still mean some rain possible and some gusty winds. especially across the cape and the islands. night. and into monday. tracking some rain. we are right now. no question about that. some of the rain continues to slide off to the east. we go through the rest of the forecast for today. i think the best chance this afternoon for some scattered showers and a rumble of thunder and a downpour would be across southeastern massachusetts. 74 in boston right now. lowering humidity from northwest to southeast throughout the evening hours. so it will turn more comfortable overnight tonight. we will lose the mugginess out there. any breaks of sunshine, more
12:17 pm
then tomorrow, a mix of sun and clouds, breezy. isolated pop-up shower. much of the day is dry. mid to upper 70's. for a recap on the summer, over to danielle. >> danielle: yeah. hard to believe it is already september. august as wrapping up as the warmest on record. our average august temperature, around 72 degrees. we were up above 76. so snagging the number one spot from 1988 there. it was warm. it was dry. all these orange boxes, these are days when our temperatures were above average. again, we month above normal. our average high temperature, almost 85 degrees. so five degrees above where we should be. and for meteorological summer, it was the fifth warmest on record. so this is the drought monitor updated today. and now almost 23% of the state pretty much almost everyone inside 495 in an extreme drought. we do need any rain we can get. june, july, and august, meteorological summer also wrapping up as the driest on record.
12:18 pm
inches of rain. on average, we should see more than ten inches. tracking some rain outside right now. it is much needed. for more on that, chris, back to you. >> chris: you need more than what we are getting outside. many times just picking up a tenth, two-tenths of an inch of rain. cape cod, your forecast. you are fine on saturday. sunday, the best chance of the gusty winds and showers developing will come on. in as this system emerges back to the south of us, the waters are warm. it could contain quite a punch here. as we watch this tropical system evolve. e tropical. bottom line, there is a potent storm south of us. the highest risk of beach erosion and coastal flooding extends from long island down into the mid-atlantic. up here, a modest amount of coastal flooding in the south-facing islands. low tides astronomically speaking. a lot of eastern massachusetts will do okay with this. we will keep an eye on it. >> sarah: still ahead, if you are looking to get a

12:24 pm
have been three fatalities. at least 30 serious injuries to students in fires at these boarding houses, rooming houses, apartment houses. they say it is extra important and an it underscores the importance of checking those smoke detectors, hiing the test button. and that will keep you safe. >> sarah: still ahead on news, a heart-warming picture capturing hearts.

>> sarah: tropical storm hermine barreling towards the florida coast. residents now placing for rain and the flooding. the storm could become a hurricane by the time it makes landfall. a state of emergency has been issued in the state. >> christa: right now we are tracking the path of the potential flooding and the damage. here is sarah rosario. she is in florida. good afternoon, sarah. >> reporter: good afternoon to you, christa and sarah: as you can see behind me, the water is rising.
12:31 pm
the wind is starring to pick up. it is also starting to rain. we have seen flash flooding because of this storm. in the area. and many residents are worried about what's going happen here today. and in the upcoming days to come. and while the storm isn't expected to last very long, it is expected to pack a punch. which is why local officials and residents are preparing for the worst. some of what we have seen from tropical storm hermine. jolt of oh, my goodness. >> my biggest concern is that people who are in storm surge evacuation zones and told to evacuate won't get out. >> reporter: with most of the state under a state of emergency, governor rick scott announced the closure of all state offices until it passes. this, as residents scramble for sand-bags. more than 11,000 filled in ocala in two days. >> getting ready. getting ready. got the sand.
12:32 pm
north sarasota county, south of tampa, it is easier for some to travel roads by kayak rather than by car. local officials warn of the calm before the storm. >> i'm laughing because it is so deceiving right now. it looks calm. we know how fast the water comes right up on the street without an event. >> reporter: included in the evacuations are an animal shelter in jacksonville and a hospital in bradenton. what's to come. >> reporter: and if this this storm makes landfall as a hurricane, it will be the first to do so in florida in 11 years. now, if the storms continues to move north, it will bring its threat to residents living along the eastern coast of the u.s. now back to you. >> christa: the storm is likely to make its way, as we are been talking, up the east coast.
12:33 pm
here is chris lambert with that. >> chris: that will depend on the track, chris tamplt looks like it would be later sunday into monday. the best chance for us to see some wind and rain out of this. tropical storm hermine, 65-mile-per-hour winds moving northeast, northeast right now. it reemerges here off the mid-atlantic coastline. you note from sunday into tuesday, there is not much movement. so once it gets in this position, high pressure is going to block it in it is going to wobble around for a couple of days before it eventually scoots out to sea. it is very important to figure out where exactly is that cutoff. you know, if it is several hundred miles to the south of us, stalls down here, then we don't see a whole lot of wind or rain out of the storm system late sunday into monday. if it is a closer approach to the new england coastline, you know, maybe 50, 100 miles south of us, it would be more impactful in terms of dragging in some strong winds as well as some heavy rain.
12:34 pm
sunday night into monday would be the opportunity to pick up on some stronger winds. as well as some heavier rain. especially for the cape and the islands. wouldn't be surprised with the sheer pressure gradient. tracking some rain for this afternoon. most of it will push down to southeastern massachusetts. we will talk more on that in the 7-day forecast ahead. >> sarah: see the latest weather reports on-line and on our 7 news app. president obama visiting a remote island in hawaii today. midway island expanded a marine monument to over 500,000 square miles. yesterday in honolulu, the president addressed a group of government leaders about the environmental policy. he also mailed sure to address tropical storm preparations as

12:46 pm
important to the forecast for new england as well as to the mid-atlantic. we will have to watch to see how close this gets. in terms of the coastline, south-facing shore of new england will be most impacted. the sheer pressure difference from this high, blocking it to the th . we will introduce the chance of rain sunday night into monday. we will talk about the forecast models. different models. and their individual tracks with the lines. you notice how once it gets into this area, they start to
