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

That marked a drop from one day earlier, when Florence suddenly strengthened and sustained winds hit 130 miles per hour - making it the first major hurricane of the 2018 Atlantic season. Currently, the storm as low chance of formation.

"We are expecting it to intensify later this weekend, to return to hurricane status", he told NEWS 95.7's The Rick Howe Show.

The primary simulation of the European model has demonstrated remarkable consistency with a hurricane landfall in the Mid-Atlantic on the past five runs, dating back to Tuesday night.

So, while it's certainly not time to press the panic button - the models likely will change significantly over the next week to 10 days - Florence definitely bears watching closely.

While a direct path for Hurricane Florence has not yet been determined, the storm is making a consistent west, northwest move, according to Steven Pfaff with the National Weather Service. The issue that forecasts with a storm beyond the 5 days are very unreliable and is no better than throwing darts onto a board. Or, it could make an actual landfall, with more severe impacts at the beaches, and wind & rain farther inland here in the Piedmont.


The risk of impact on the U.S. East Coast from Florence next week has increased, the Miami-based weather forecaster added.

The NHC encouraged residents along the east coast to review their hurricane plans. But late this weekend, it appears Florence will pass the first fork, and we will see if it gets captured by the blocking high.

Despite weakening on Wednesday, Florence has already started to rebound as the wind shear relaxes. "If you don't have a hurricane emergency kit, this is the time to assemble one".

The next name on the list for the Atlantic Hurricane Season is Isaac.
