Florence to Become Hurricane Soon; Possibly Historic

Florence to Become Hurricane Soon; Possibly Historic”

Even if Florence remains entirely at sea, the storm is likely to generate heavy seas and hazardous rip currents along the USA this weekend, the hurricane center warned. Storms become a hurricane when they reach 74 miles per hour.

Florence has sustained winds of 70 mph on Sunday morning and is located 765 miles southeast of Bermuda.

"Florence is expected to reach major hurricane intensity between 36 and 48 hours, with additional strengthening after that". As a result, the National Hurricane Center expects Florence to regain hurricane status within the next 24 hours and intensify to a major hurricane (Category 3 or higher) by Tuesday.

Florence continues to churn in the open Atlantic today. On that track, it would be highly unlikely the WBTV viewing area would be impacted in a great way. Many folks take delight in posting individual weather model runs showing a major, catastrophic landfall over populous cities. But weaker winds and the storm's interaction with the jet stream have nudged it on a more westerly track that's very unusual.

The storm is expected to approach the south-east United States coast on Thursday.

Hurricane expert Robbie Berg said: "The risk of other direct impacts associated with Florence along the US East Coast next week has increased".

"It will probably be a day or two until we have honed in on where it will make landfall", Loewenthal said on Saturday afternoon.

Florence had been affected by wind shear but the conditions in front of Florence are now favorable for development and likely even quicker development. Inland effects would be less severe in this scenario, although it among the least likely. The National Weather Service in Morehead City predicts that Florence will be renamed a hurricane on Sunday. "But this is a serious storm and it does warrant our attention".

The forecast cone of Florence touches the East Coast between Savannah and Wilmington, N.C. Hurricanes in the Atlantic usually follow a track that looks roughly like a backwards C owing to steering winds and the location of high pressure system known as the Bermuda High that generally sits parked in the middle of the Atlantic.

The three tropical systems - Florence, Isaac and Helene - come right before the Atlantic hurricane season hits its peak Monday. It will likely strengthen to a hurricane and could affect the Lesser Antilles late next week.
