Hot, Humid & Mostly Dry Thursday
Tracking Hurricane Florence
It’s getting hotter and the humidity will stay quite thick as we head into the weekend, but our rain chances are dwindling.
We can expect partly to mostly cloudy skies with isolated showers and a few thunderstorms this afternoon into the evening. Highs will hit the upper 80s to low 90s. Heat indices will hover in the mid to upper 90s and maybe crack the 100 mark briefly.
Mostly clear and humid tonight with lows in the upper 60s to mid 70s.
Friday through the weekend sees daytime highs getting hotter in the low to mid 90s under mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies. We should be rain-free, but could see some spotty showers on Sunday.
Nightly lows will be in the upper 60s to mid 70s.
As I am writing this, Hurricane Florence has weakened to a Cat 2 storm, but a very strong one nonetheless. Although she’ll hit warmer waters today, wind sheer will help keep her from strengthening. Florence is projected to make landfall late tonight/early tomorrow along the central North Carolina coast with storm surge up 13′ and rainfall up to 40″ possible. Flooding will be devastating. Outside of a slight breeze this weekend, our area shouldn’t be affected.
