MILLBURN, NJ - Although the current, projected track sees the storm heading in a northeasterly direction away from the coast and out to sea, Tropical Storm Hermine looks set to throw a wet, windy blanket over the Hilltop City's Labor Day weekend, and could prove dangerous to area beach communities. The current forecast shows rain developing Sunday, accompanied by sustained winds in excess of 20 miles per hour (mph), with gusts exceeding 40 mph.

The chance for rain continues through Monday, with windy conditions continuing through Tuesday, with gradually subsiding speeds.

After lashing Florida, Hermine will bring rough surf, heavy rain and gusty winds to the coastal area of the mid-Atlantic with potential to inflict damage on local communities and endanger the lives of those who enter the surf or the ocean.

According to AccuWeather.com, due to the duration of the storm, there is the risk of coastal flooding in some areas hit hard and missed by Superstorm Sandy, with.a large mass of dry air eventually giving way and allowing Hermine to push up the Eastern Seaboard, beyond the southern United States this weekend.

Heavy rain and gusty winds will advance northeastward over parts of Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania and New York as well as much of Delaware and New Jersey during Saturday and Saturday night.

"Gusts between 60 and 75 mph are possible from the central New Jersey coast to the southern tip of Delmarva," according to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Dave Dombek.

Enough rain and wind can occur along this swath to cause flash flooding, downed tree limbs and sporadic power outages.
