Tropical Storm Hermine is the unexpected guest that may end up ruining many New Yorkers’ plans this Labor Day Weekend.

Winds are expected to start increasing on Saturday as Hermine approaches the try state area with gusts over 40-mph. The storm is expected to linger offshore for several days, causing rough surf and dangerous conditions. As a result of dangerous riptides, all city beaches will be closed this Sunday.

“If you go in the water you are putting your life in danger,” said De Blasio. “It’s as simple as that.”

The storm made landfall in Florida today as a Category One hurricane before weakening to a tropical storm. As it moves up the cost, rain is expected to move into the area on Sunday afternoon. Monday could see heavy rainfall with 30-35 mile-per-hour winds.

The sunshine should return by Wednesday.
