Tropical Storm Florence is looking to be something to watch especially if you live or are traveling to the Southeast the second half of the week. There is no immediate threat until possibly late Wednesday when it is predicted to turn into a stronger hurricane. This storm will surely impact flights. If you have the option to avoid the area, you may want to do so to save yourself some delays, frustration and stay safe. You can follow the storm’s track on The Weather Channel.
Tropical Storm Florence To Affect SE This Week
Per Weather Channel,
Conditions in the atmosphere and ocean, including decreased wind shear and warm sea-surface temperatures, have improved and should allow Florence to grow into a major hurricane early this week. A major hurricane is one that is Category 3 or stronger on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale.
Florence is not an immediate threat to land through much of Wednesday.
At a Glance
Florence is now intensifying and will become a hurricane on Sunday.
Rapid intensification into a major hurricane is possible by Monday.
A strike on the U.S. East Coast is increasingly likely.
This may happen as soon as Thursday.
Those near the East Coast should monitor closely and firm up their hurricane plans.
Florence is generating swells that are beginning to affect parts of the U.S. coastline.
We will keep an eye on this for you and update as needed. If you can re-route yourself this week away from the storm’s path, that would be ideal. Stay safe everyone!
