Though no warnings, Hermine's wind, scattered showers still an issue

Posted: Updated:

Post-tropical storm Hermine will continue to spin a few scattered showers into Connecticut Tuesday and Wednesday.

Meteorologists Mark Dixon Scot Haney said it will also be downright windy.

A tropical storm warning that had been in place for most of the Connecticut shoreline was canceled around 11 a.m.

The warning was due to high surf, rip currents and wind gusts of between 40 and 50 mph on the shoreline.

"Important to point out, no alerts in effect does not mean we are done with the system," Dixon said. "The wind [Tuesday] afternoon will still gust to around 40 mph along the shoreline, to 30 mph inland, and occasional showers will also be possible."

Dixon said the system will drift westward Tuesday afternoon, staying to Connecticut's south.

It continues to fall apart as it does so.

"It's in much cooler waters," Haney said. "The area of circulation is in much cooler water, so that is going to help the storm system to fall apart."

Nevertheless, Haney said the state will see wind coming out of the north-northeast. It caused a few hundred power outages across the state during the overnight hours.

Eversource said it was prepared for any further outages.

That counter-clockwise rotation is what's expected to push in the scattered showers on Tuesday. Track the shower activity with Early Warning Pinpoint Doppler here.

High temperatures for the day are expected to reach the mid-70s.

"Stay out of the Atlantic," warned Haney. "I know all of the beaches are closed. It's life-threatening. It's dangerous."

Haney said the storm could get within 50 to 100 miles of Connecticut as it moves throughout the day on Tuesday.

Wednesday should be breezy with a continued chance for scattered showers and a high of 82.

"Then the center of circulation pushes away to the north and to the east of Connecticut by Thursday," he said.

Once Hermine departs, Connecticut will be left with much warmer weather.

"It'll be back to summer-like weather," Haney said.

He called for highs in the 90s with increased humidity on Thursday and Friday.
