Early Warning Weather

Hermine continues to track eastward

Posted: Updated:

Parts of the state remained under a Tropical Storm Warning on Sunday night as post-tropical storm Hermine moved closer to the northeast.

The warning was issued for the entire coastline, from the Stamford area to the New London area.

Track the storm with the new Early Warning Pinpoint Doppler here.

Meteorologist Mike Cameron said Hermine is being called a “post-tropical storm” because “having characteristics more closely resembling a mid-latitude storm, whereby the storm is asymmetric and the wind field is farther away from the central area of low pressure.”

Hermine's new track is farther to the east than previous tracks, which means there may be less rain in the state and the winds would be lighter.

WFSB meteorologist Bruce DePrest and Cameron said even though the water will be 70 degrees on Monday, they advised swimmers and small craft to stay out of the water because of the dangerous rip tides.

“It is very difficult to battle a rip current,” DePrest said.

“It’s going to be a slow process to get the clouds and rain in here,” DePrest said.

Temperatures to be in the 70s and Monday will start with some sunshine in the morning. Some towns including Bridgeport could hit the 80s.

“But, it is going to be windy tomorrow,” Cameron said.

There is a possibility of flooding

On Sunday night, Post-Tropical Storm Hermine was producing 70 mph winds in the Atlantic Ocean. The storm heads northeast on Monday.

The central part of the storm misses Connecticut.

“And will likely stay far enough away to not give us trouble,” Cameron said.

Because of the 70 mph winds, the storm could still impact Connecticut.

However, some parts of the state will see rain on Monday. Eastern Connecticut has a chance for an isolated shower.

Showers are possible on Tuesday for parts of Connecticut  

Later in the week, the storm heads toward Nova Scotia toward the south.
