Watching Florence off the East Coast

  • Hurricane Florence the first major hurricane of the year could pose a threat to the US East Coast

In an early advisory, forecasters said strong wind shear had helped smother Florence Thursday. These swells will likely increase during next week and result in rough surf and unsafe rip current activity.

Long-range computer models project the storm to be near the East Coast by Thursday. A path toward Florida appears unlikely at this point, but we'll let you know if anything changes. No tropical storm or hurricane has ever gotten close to the United States when it was anywhere near Florence's position.

As of Thursday, the storm was moving northwest through the central Atlantic Ocean at a speed near 10 miles per hour with maximum sustained winds of 105 miles per hour.

Hurricane Florence has weakened some but will likely strengthen again into a major hurricane and could threaten the East Coast by next week.

Florence was packing maximum sustained winds of 105 miles per hour as of late Thursday morning, the hurricane center said.

There now are no hurricane watches or warnings in effect, though a possible timetable for an approach on Bermuda is most likely Tuesday, according to a report by The Weather Channel.

The intensity of the storm "is likely to increase significantly" in the coming days, according to the National Hurricane Center.

If Florence does keep tracking towards the USA, the hurricane could possible make landfall anywhere from the Carolinas to New England as early as Wednesday, according to Accuweather. And while its long-term path is still uncertain, the storm is expected to begin affecting parts of the U.S. East Coast over the next few days. But Southeastern North Carolina officials say now is the time to make sure your hurricane plan and supplies are up to date.

"Regardless of Florence's eventual track, large swells will begin to affect Bermuda later today and portions of the U.S. East Coast this weekend, resulting in life-threatening surf and rip currents", a message from the National Weather Service read.
