Dry weather as we wait on Florence

Good Tuesday, folks. We continue to deal with mainly dry weather, with October-like temps for a few more days. As we enjoy the dry weather, monster Hurricane Florence is churning toward North Carolina. This storm has a chance to bring some rain our way this weekend.

Let’s start with the good and that’s the weather out there today. Highs are in the upper 60s to low 70s with a mix of sun and clouds. The clouds, though, may wind up being pretty tough to push around.

Wednesday is a little milder with upper 70s to near 80 with mainly dry skies rolling on. Readings by the end of the week jump back into the lower 80s as we watch what’s happening along the east coast.

Hurricane Florence continues to rapidly intensify as it barrels toward the Carolinas. Here’s the latest specifics and track forecast from the National Hurricane Center:

Folks, this storm is going to be devastating and will likely go down with some of the all-time greats to this this region. Here’s some more information from the NHC, including the wind forecast:

The European Model continues to show a devastating impact on the Carolinas…

From there, the model takes the remnants all the way into the Ohio Valley this weekend and early next week:

Here’s the rainfall forecast from that particular run:

The GFS has a different look, with a looping storm making landfall in North Carolina then being picked up by the trough sweeping in from the northwest:

The NAVY has more of a European Model look in bringing that system our way:

The impact on our weather is a long way from being set in stone, but the potential is certainly alarming.

Make it a great day and take care.
