At 5 p.m., the center of Tropical Storm Hermine was moving toward the north-northwest near 10 mph with a turn to the northwest possible early next week.

Some strengthening is possible through Saturday, with weakening expected on Sunday, and Hermine could become a remnant low on Monday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 45 miles from the center.

Hermine is forecast to produce 2 to 4 inches of rain, with isolated totals of 6 inches over the Canary Islands through this weekend. This rainfall could cause some flash flooding in areas of higher terrain.
