Florence weakens to a tropical storm

Storm season peaks: Hurricane Florence still far from landfall, uncertainty remains for East Coast

On the forecast track, the center of Florence will move over the warm waters of the southwestern Atlantic Ocean through Wednesday.

Even if Florence stays out to sea, models show other systems developing over the Atlantic, nearly on cue as the hurricane season hits its peak Monday.

The risk of a direct impact along the USA east coast has increased but the NHC says there is still a very large uncertainty in the model. Historically speaking, ridge's that build over the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic have been known patterns to result in hurricane/tropical storm impacts.

The National Hurricane Centre (NHC) in Miami said Florence's weakening appeared to have stopped for the moment, but restrengthening is forecast over the weekend.

Cooper said that emergency management officials were working with local and federal officials to prepare for "possible impacts" from Florence.

In 2017, Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Jose, and Maria wreaked a significant amount of damage, costing the government $200 billion, and claimed more than 100 lives.

IPhone Xs Max and iPhone 9 cases discovered at Walmart - they're big
Apple still has time to change the name, lest we all suffer people telling the same jokes for the next year . The company has remained coy about the release date, specs, pricing and just about everything else.

With quick strengthening expected, keep it tuned to to the NBC2 First Alert Hurricane Tracking Team for the latest updates on Florence, and all systems in the Atlantic.

"It is still too early to determine impacts (if any) to the Eastern Seaboard". The storm was traveling west at 8 miles per hour and had maximum sustained winds of 65 miles per hour.

This is likely due to wind shear, or strong opposing winds whipping over that portion of the Atlantic that can tear storms apart.

If the storm does head toward the east coast, threats could begin in the middle of next week.

Large swells will also begin affecting the US Southeast coast, with larger waves and rough surf as early as this weekend, increasing through next week.

Some models show Florence veering sharply north in the coming days and missing the United States entirely, while others have it moving toward the coast. Both are forecast to become named tropical storms or hurricanes within the next two days, the hurricane center predicts.
