Throughout the day, FOX8 MAX Weather Meteorologist Emily Byrd and Chief Meteorologist Van Denton will update us on Tropical Storm Hermine’s path and where you can expect the most significant rainfall.
As of 11 a.m. Thursday morning, the storm has strengthened, with sustained winds of 65 mph and gusts up to 75 mph. Byrd said Hermine is forecasted to be a hurricane before it makes landfall.
It is projected to maintain tropical storm strength through eastern Georgia and South Carolina, with the strongest winds on the eastern side of the circulation, which is over water.
The storm will ride along the North Carolina coastline, with tropical storm warnings and watches from Surf City to the Outerbanks.
The latest models show improving conditions for North Carolina, with all of the rough weather being pushed further to the east.
