(WVUE) -

Hurricane Hermine made landfall as a Category 1 around 12:30 a.m. near St. Marks, Florida.

It has now weakened to a tropical storm and is moving more quickly north-northeast. Impacts today are expected in south Georgia and South Carolina with still some lingering storms across parts of Florida.

Late weekend-early next week, the northeastern U.S. will be on standby for possible impacts as the system becomes a remnant low.

Locally, we will continue to see dry air on the back side of the storm. That means little, if any rain today with highs climbing to the mid 90s.

The Coastal Flood Advisory was canceled for our area.
