First Warning Forecast: Tracking Hermine’s lingering effects along with much warmer weather
Tracking Hermine’s lingering effects along with much warmer weather….We’re still feeling some of the effects from Hermine. But we’re also looking ahead, tracking much warmer weather this week.
Hermine continues to churn and meander to the northeast over the Atlantic Ocean. This setup will continue to create breezy and at times gusty winds along the immediate coast over the next couple of days. Those winds will create some problems at the beach, causing rough surf and a big threat for rip currents. Tidal flooding will also be a concern. However, the tides should remain at the nuisance level, which is far lower than the moderate levels we saw over the weekend. High tide at Sewells Point is at 12:38 a.m. and 1:05 p.m. Tuesday.
Otherwise, as we move through our Monday night, expect partly cloudy skies. Most areas should be dry. Lows will be in the mid 60s. We’re heading back to school on Tuesday in Hampton Roads. We’ll start the day with temperatures in the mid and upper 60s. By afternoon, highs will reach the upper 80s. We’ll see mostly sunny skies. On Wednesday, expects highs in the upper 80s and lower 90s. By the end of the week, highs will be in the 90s under a mix of sun and clouds.
Tonight: Partly Cloudy. Low temperatures in the mid and upper 60s. Winds: W/NW 5-15 mph.
Tuesday: A Few Clouds. Warmer. High temperatures in the upper 80s. Winds: NW/W 5-15 mph.
Wednesday: Sun and Clouds. Warm. High temperatures in the upper 80s. Winds: W 5-10 mph.

Post-tropical cyclone Hermine continues to drift slowly north off of the Mid-Atlantic coast. Hermine is centered about 175 miles SE of Long Island and moving NNW at 7 mph. This general motion is expected to continue overnight, followed by a slow and erratic motion on Tuesday and Wednesday. On the forecast track, the center of Hermine will meander slowly offshore of the New England coast into Wednesday. Gradual weakening is forecast to begin tonight into Tuesday morning.
