a big wave but not a washout as hermine lingers off the atlantic coast. hello. i'm debra alfarone. for days we've been watching hermine as a storm formed in the gulf and headed up the coast, but now that it's here it's thankfully staying offshore. meteorologist howard bernstein has been tracking hermine as the storm lingers at sea. what's the latest?

it will meander offshore the next couple days. tropical storm warnings are still up from fenwick island north now to cape cod tomorrow afternoon. notice the track will go more to the northwest here but stay far enough offshore where yesterday we thought the tropical storm force winds would come back tonight into monday from areas like ocean city to rehoboth. that's probably not going to happen now. we'll kick this thing off to the east wednesday and thursday. we're talking tropical storm winds 39 miles an hour sustained moving in toward the central jersey coach, much of long island and southern new england tomorrow afternoon. so place like boston down through providence, hartford and much of long island will be wet and windy, but around the oceans here they'll be breezy, battering with the waves here, but looks like the worst will be just off to our east and northeast. summing up the impacts from hermine, looks more like central new jersey through new england
