Tropical Depression #10 is now Tropical Storm Hermine
MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) -
The Tropics are quickly heating up. Tropical Depression #10 formed Friday morning, and it became the 8th named tropical storm of this season on Friday afternoon. At the time it was upgraded to a tropical storm, it had max sustained winds of 40mph...moving NNW @ 10. It’s surrounded by dry air which isn’t the best environment for it to thrive. Plus, it’ll be encountering more wind shear (change in wind speed and direction with height) over the next few days. So, it’s expected to fizzle out by early next week. It’s no threat to the U.S.
BE sure to continue to plan and prepare for the 2022 Atlantic Hurricane Season.
