What to Know
- Hermine continues to push slightly to the east, allowing for a further downward trend in the tidal departures.
- As of Monday morning, Hermine was about 350 miles offshore, creating rough surf and rip currents at New Jersey and Delaware beaches.
- The storm is forecast to stay offshore but may move westward Monday and early Tuesday while still remaining offshore.
Hermine continued to linger about 350 miles off the coast Monday morning, the brunt of the storm sparing our region.
But the storm continued to make for dangerous rip currents at New Jersey and Delaware beaches, where authorities banned swimming in the ocean until the storm moves out. Threats of minor to moderate coastal flooding still exist with high tide coming later Monday morning and Monday evening, as Hermine's speed slowed to about 3 mph.
NBC10's First Alert Weather Team is tracking the possibility of light rain along the shore, but otherwise, the majority of Hermine's impact will likely be felt in the form of clouds and wind.
Further inland, weather will stay pleasant, with temperatures reaching into the 80s later Monday.
The Tropical Storm Warning has been discontinued over land while a Coastal Flood Warning is in effect due to the threat of minor and moderate coastal flooding.
"This will continue through midweek until the storm moves farther away," meteorologist Sheena Parveen said.

Hermine is not expected to strengthen any more than it is now and should start to weaken by Tuesday. By Wednesday it will move away though there will still be rip current risks. After Hermine moves out, we're in for another possible heat wave with a stretch of dry weather and highs in the 90s.
