Tropical Storm Florence A "Potential Threat"

Several potential storms are heading West from Africa as the 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season continues Storm season peaks: Hurricane Florence still far from landfall, uncertainty remains for East Coast
Stacy Houston | 08 September, 2018, 17:09

Regardless of Florence's eventual track, large ocean swells are likely to arrive along the beaches of the Mid-Atlantic states, resulting in life-threatening surf and rip currents.

Forecasts for Tropical Storm Florence have narrowed, and it's not the news residents of Bermuda and the U.S. East Coast were hoping for as the storm seems now more likely to hit the two countries Weather Channel reports. Given the uncertainty, we encourage all interests along the U.S. East Coast to closely monitor the progression of Florence. The storm, expected to regain hurricane strength, poses the threat of heavy rain, risky surf and rip currents. And it's definitely too early to tell where they will go.

Some hurricane models indicate Hurricane Florence, the first major hurricane of the 2018 season, could pose a threat to the eastern United States coastline, including SC.

Tropical Storm Florence, which is predicted to regain hurricane strength by the end of the weekend, was upgraded this morning to a potential threat to Bermuda.

Jon Gruden's ex-ESPN partner takes a shot: What is he doing?
Mack, the 2016 Defensive Player of the Year, was looking for a new contract and had been holding out of Raiders camp. Mack was recently traded to the Chicago Bears, and former Georgia running back Todd Gurley is not upset about it.

Some forecast models have shown Florence slamming into land by late next week, while others indicated the storm would curve away from shore. The upper high to the northeast of the storm is strong on all models but it is strongest on the European and weakest on the GFS model (relatively speaking).

The National Hurricane Center has not yet issued any coastal watches or warnings as of their 5 p.m. ET advisory. By next Tuesday, the National Hurricane Center predicts Florence will be on the brink of Category 4 intensity with 130 miles per hour sustained winds. Whether or not that occurs before or after landfall makes the longer range forecast uncertain at this point.

Closer to the US, there's a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms in the western Atlantic that has a low chance of forming into a tropical storm.

Cooper says state emergency management officials are working with local and federal agencies to prepare North Carolina for possible impacts from Florence.
