Sunshine and minimal rain chances linger across the Carolinas in these final days of summer, with some heat relief on the way!
Get ready for some quiet weather these next few days before better rain and storm chances return next week.
Florence has strengthened with winds at 140 mph. The storm is expected to move inland through North Carolina and potentially bring some heavy rain for parts of our area on Sunday into Monday.
Hurricane Florence: All indications point toward strengthening as it moves west very slowly at 5-10 miles per hour. It remains a strong category one hurricane with winds near the center at 90 miles per hour.
Florence is now 2018's first Major Hurricane, currently a Cat 3 with 115 mph wind speeds, though at one point it reached Cat 4 status with 135 mph wind speeds.
Rain chances remain fairly isolated the next few days as the tropics remain active!
The heat and humidity will remain in place locally, while those along the Gulf Coast are tracking Gordon. Our area should be spared any impacts from this storm.
Labor Day this year looks like it will be a hot one with limited late day interruptions from storms.
