Hermine likely to brings clouds, not deluges

Sunshine may be in short supply over the Labor Day weekend, but fortunately for area residents, Tropical Storm Hermine is expected to pack less of a punch inland than originally feared when it moves into the region late on Saturday, Sept. 3, according to the National Weather Service.

Hermine, currently centered over southeast Georgia, is expected to stall off the New Jersey and Delmarva coasts on Sunday, Sept. 4, and Monday, Sept. 5, before exiting the region entirely. A tropical storm watch remains in effect for portions of the southern Delaware and New Jersey coasts.

A more easterly track for the storm is expected to spare Chester and Delaware counties from any substantial rainfall.

Cloudy conditions are predicted locally on Saturday with a high near 77 and a 30 percent chance of rain on Saturday night. Those conditions will continue on Sunday with a high near 75; however, the likelihood of rain will increase to 40 percent on Sunday night with some wind gusts possible.

The cloudy Labor Day forecast also includes a 30 percent chance of rain. Some sun is likely to return on Tuesday with a high of 85, and sunshine should dominate on Wednesday, which is expected to reach a high of 89, according to the National Weather Service.
