Florence has weakened overnight to a Cat 2...still nothing to sneeze at but there's a good chance she will rebuild before hitting land over se N.Carolina. Florence will still slow down and enable her wind and rain to become the threat all have been talking about. Early next week the ghost of Florence rides up Appalachians - may bring a pounding of rain in her track. Below - today's severe weather threat in dark green and yellow - followed by her track and timetable of wind.
Below- animated maps for the next 2 days...followed by rainfall amounts over next 7 days. Coastal Carolinas will see over 30" of rain from Florence.
Lastly - a look at the Atlantic busy tropical basin. No worries from Helene or Joyce. Issac on the other hand needs to be watched as he may reach a hurricane and head toward Florida. Gulf of Mexico disturbance will likely become Kirk and move to wet down Texas even more. Be safe.
Very Dangerous Florence is already sending feeder bands of rain toward the Carolinas. 140 mph winds could increase today. Storm will slow or stall upon approaching the coasts of the Carolinas. Models still target No. Carolina..but Euro Model wants to bring it south along the coast and then move it inland near Savannah, Ga. May not be wrong. No matter what..life threatening storm surge..flooding and winds will hit the coasts from N.C.
to Georgia. No one along these coasts should try to ride this one out..if so..they should put their telephone numbers on the soles of their shoes.
Below- latest track of Florence & expected wind time table...and rainfall.
Below-= today's risk of severe weather in dark green and yellow...followed by animated maps.
Lastly - a look at the Atlantic basic. System in Gulf will likely become Joyce and head to Texas this weekend. Issac may eventually join up with Florence before moving out of the picture. Be safe.
Hurricane Florence - a major destructive hurricane with 140-150 mph winds heading west northwest toward the Carolinas of The U.S. In addition to many questions on her track...it looks certain that she will directly affect the Eastern third of the Carolinas with destructive wind..rain- floods and storm surge and then inland areas as far northwest as Virginia. Since the storm will stall...rainfall could easily measure over 2-3 FEET IN PLACES BY THE TIME THE WEEKEND IS OUT. This storm will become historical as far as flooding and should not be taken lightly.
Below...it's track...timing on storm force winds.
Below is the track of Issac. Following that...today's risk of severe weather in dark green.
Below- satellite picture showing the tropics. Hurricane Helene will curve north and should not be a threat. Issac will stay weak but follow in back of Florence - staying offshore. System in Gulf could become a tropical storm and head for the Texas coast with heavy rains.
