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.
