Florence weakens to a tropical storm

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

It has maximum sustained winds of 35 miles per hour, and it is moving to the west at 10 miles per hour. But late this weekend, it appears Florence will pass the first fork, and we will see if it gets captured by the blocking high.

"Swells generated by Florence will begin to affect Bermuda on Friday and will reach portions of the US East Coast over the weekend".

As of 8 a.m. Thursday, Hurricane Florence had 115 miles per hour winds and was located northeast of the Leeward islands, according to the National Hurricane Center.

It's still too early to know for sure, but we should all be tracking the storm carefully in the days ahead.

Both the European and American models have shifted the storm westward, rather than northerly, increasing the likelihood it will come close to or make landfall somewhere on the East Coast.

Throughout today, predicted trajectories have consistently predicted Florence passing south of Bermuda as a hurricane in the daytime on Tuesday. The storm, expected to regain hurricane strength, poses the threat of heavy rain, unsafe surf and rip currents.

"The risk of other direct impacts associated with Florence along the U.S. East Coast next week has increased".

But, the NHC said that while further weakening is forecast during the next day or two Florence is expected to remain a hurricane and likely re-intensify over the weekend.

Though weakened to a tropical storm, Florence was expected to regain hurricane strength as it neared Bermuda.

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.

Wind shear will lessen over the weekend, and Florence should regain major hurricane intensity (Category 3 or greater) by early next week - as the storm moves northwest, getting closer to the U.S. coastline by the day.

'This setup will guide Florence on a west to northwesterly course into next week'.
