The Scoop on Tropical Storm Hermine

First, AccuWeather has extensive coverage here. They keep updating it so it is the "go to" site throughout the storm.

That said, here is a rundown of the intensifying tropical storm. AccuWeather's path forecast looks like this.

Windy is putting it mildly. It is difficult to depict the extent of the winds and their speeds.
If I am right about intensity, the deep red is areas where gusts of 75 mph or so could occur. Please, consider this just an approximation.

Here is a worst-case scenario for storm surge, which is defined as the amount of water above normal tides. It does not include waves.

Tornadoes are quite possible in northern Florida tomorrow. I expect tornado watches will be issued. 

Here is the amount of rain forecast for the Southeast the next 3 1/2 days. Flooding is possible.
I'll do another summary tomorrow morning. If you live in the affected areas, please take appropriate precautions now.
