The remains of Florence work through the Northeast today and out tonight. SOme showers and storms Plains into Midwest. Tropical Moisture off Baja will spread north into Arizona. Below - today's risk of severe weather in dark green a/o yellow.
Below- animated maps for the next couple...followed by amounts of rain over the next 7 days. Heaviest in Northeast falling today.
Lastly - high temperatures for Wednesday. Be safe.
Predawn...Florence 25 miles east of Wilmington, N.C. moving west and should come ashore today with 100 mph winds. Below- track and rainfall projections for the next 7 days.
Below - today's risk of severe weather in yellow- with Florence.
Below- animated maps for next 2 days followed by high temperatures for Saturday.
Lastly...satellite of the U.S. and one of the Atlantic showing the traffic of tropical systems. Be safe.
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.
Lastly - animated maps for next 2 days...followed by rainfall next 7 days.
We will be updating Florence as needed. Be safe.
Remains of Gordon over Lower Mississippi Valley moving north. Florence - major hurricane moving west and should pass south of Bermuda and then pose a threat to East Coast next week. Disturbance off Africa likely to become Helene. Below - track of Gordon and Florence.
Below - tracks of Florence by various computer models. The spread is so large that no one knows what she will do but looks like a threat to East Coast is increasing for mid next week.
Satellite-radar shows moisture with Gordon over Lower Miss. Valley. Cold front over Great Lakes may produce strong storms over Northeast today.
Pleasant weather for West and No. Central. Below - today's risk of severe weather in dark green.
Below - animated maps for the next 2 days followed by rainfall for the next 7 days. Be safe.
Above...early morning radar of Gordon. Heavy rains over Mississippi & Alabama. Below - track of Gordon....and look at Atlantic basin.
Below- today's risk of severe thunderstorms in dark green followed by animated maps for next 2 days and rainfall for next 7 days. Heaviest rain along the track of Gordon's left over moisture.
Lastly....track of Florence. Interesting note...while most of the models keep her offshore next week...The Euro Model wants to bring her into the SE Atlantic coast toward the Carolinas. Be safe.
Tropical Storm Gordon radar above.....with purple line showing it's expected track to to east of New Orleans tonight. Currently 60 mph winds..could become a minimal hurricane before landfall. Below- track of Gordon.....and today's threat of severe weather in dark green and yellow.
Below- satellite picture of Atlantic hurricane basin. Florence - almost a hurricane will head toward Bermuda....track after that should stay just offshore of the East Coast...but time will tell. ANother disturbance is being watched off Africa..it could become Helene. Below- track of Florence.
Below- animated maps for the next 2 days followed by current satellite and radar. Front over the Great Lakes won't reach the Northeast until Friday. AFter that...will it stall and produce a crumby weekend ? Maybe for the Mid Atlantic..but New England should do o.k. Lastly - rainfall for the next 5-7 days. Heaviest rain along path of Gordon.
We'll have daily weather discussions, talking about major systems on the horizon along with anything noteworthy that pops up on our radar.
