Your Weather Authority: Dry air on the back side of Hermine

(WVUE) -

Hurricane Hermine has moved inland, weakened into a tropical storm and is moving up the east coast.

The area 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.

By the weekend, a little moisture will return and there could be more average rain coverage (30 to 40 percent). It won't be quite as hot as a result, and highs will return to the lower 90s.

Minor coastal flooding outside the hurricane risk reduction system is possible with tides as much as two feet above normal.

Next week looks pretty uneventful with a few spotty storms and highs around 90.  This is fairly normal for early September.
