Tropical storm Florence weakens but poised to restrengthen

Several potential storms are heading West from Africa as the 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season continues Storm season peaks: Hurricane Florence still far from landfall, uncertainty remains for East Coast

On this path, Florence will track over the warm waters off the southeast US coastline. 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.

A ridge of high pressure moving in from the central U.S.is expected to move toward the Northeast by midweek.

Just because no hurricane on record started where Florence started and hit the U.S. mainland as major hurricane doesn't mean that it has never happened.

"However, with a high level of certainty, the East Coast will begin receiving fore-runner swells from Florence this weekend".

Now the storm sits several hundred miles east-south east of Bermuda, but is traveling on a west north-westerly course, which puts Bermuda in its direct path.

Forecasters said it was too early to tell where Florence will go.


The Hurricane Center is predicting that Florence will generate swells that will affect Bermuda by Friday and the U.S. East Coast by the weekend.

"There's a very good chance that over the next couple of days these areas of low pressure with organized thunderstorms could potentially form into tropical systems and become tropical storms with names".

Florence could regain sustained winds of at least 115 miles per hour by Monday, forecasters say.

"The disturbance is expected to move near the southern Cape Verde Islands late Saturday night or on Sunday", the Miami-based weather forecaster said, adding heavy rainfall is expected in portions of the Cape Verde islands. A direct hit by a significant hurricane remains possible along the Mid-Atlantic Coasts. Both are expected to become tropical storms in the next 24 hours and will be named Helene and Isaac.

Tropical Depression Nine was meandering about 1,755 miles east of the Windward Islands with maximum sustained winds of 35 mph. The system is moving west-northwest at 5 miles per hour.

The European and American models have shifted westward in the past two days, consistently showing a menacing hurricane coming dangerously close to the Eastern Seaboard.
