It finally has a name
Tropical Storm Hermine has intensified enough in the east-central Gulf of Mexico to earn itself a name. It currently boasts sustained winds of 40mph and a minimum central pressure of 1000mb.
The expected northward turn has begun and the system is now moving north at 2mph. Strengthening is forecast in the next 24 hours with a secondary turn to the northeast. Heavy rain and wind are expected in Florida with a landfall occurring Thursday Evening. The storm will bring no impact to Louisiana other than increased tides. For that reason, a Coastal Flood Watch is in effect through Thursday as waters could swell 2 feet above normal.
