Tropical storm Florence weakens but poised to restrengthen

Hurricane Florence has the potential to make landfall on the East Coast but it is still too early to tell Storm season peaks: Hurricane Florence still far from landfall, uncertainty remains for East Coast

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.

Earlier Friday, Depression Eight formed about 405 miles east-southeast of the southernmost Cabo Verde Islands.

AccuWeather meteorologist Dan Kottlowski said that "while it is too early to change plans, all interests in Bermuda and along the East Coast of the us should closely monitor the movement of Florence over this weekend and next week".

However, Florence is forecast to begin restrengthening as conditions become more favorable for it to gain the vertical structure that creates powerful hurricanes.

As we get into the heart of this year's hurricane season, all eyes are on the Atlantic where things are starting to heat up.

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. It was moving toward the west-northwest. Earlier this week, there was a great model spread in the track of Florence of whether it would stay out to sea or continue west towards the United States.


"Given the large uncertainty at these time ranges, it is far too soon to speculate what, if any, impacts Florence may have on the U.S. East Coast next week", the NHC said.

The Emergency Measures Organisation announced yesterday that it was prepared to meet on Monday. At this point, its exact landfall location is very hard to determine as Florence will eventually make a NW and then north turn.

Off the coast of Africa, two waves continued to become better organized and could potentially become Helene and Isaac, the season's eight and ninth named storms.

Pronesti said while it's still early to tell if this weekend's weather will be any worse than previous storms, he warns drivers should take caution and avoid driving through flooded streets. A direct hit by a significant hurricane remains possible along the Mid-Atlantic Coasts.

Even if Florence avoids a direct hit on the East Coast, it will likely come very close, resulting in unsafe surf, beach erosion, and the potential for coastal flooding.
