Florence To Restrengthen To Major Hurricane Before Threatening U.S.

  • Storm season peaks: Hurricane Florence still far from landfall, uncertainty remains for East Coast

The first will be the trough moving across the North Atlantic this weekend, and the second being the massive ridge that develops over the northeast and over-top of Florence next week. At least two of those storms have the hurricane center and emergency management officials along the U.S. East Coast warning residents to put their hurricane preparations into gear, if they haven't already.

Remnants of Gordon continues to produce rain, thunderstorms and a few floods over the Central U.S., but the storm is not impacting Florida.

Though weakened to a tropical storm, Florence is expected to regain hurricane strength as it nears Bermuda.

As of Wednesday, the hurricane had maximum sustained winds of 125 miles per hour, making it a Category 3 storm. However Florence has still maintained a solid core overnight and upper air winds are forecast to begin relaxing today. The system was expected to pass south of the territory Tuesday as a major hurricane.

Overnight weather models show Florence taking a mostly westerly course.

The much advertised weakening of Hurricane FLorence to a tropical storm occurred yesterday and last night as the stormed move into an area of hostile upper air winds.

Storm season peaks: Hurricane Florence still far from landfall, uncertainty remains for East Coast

This is likely due to wind shear, or strong opposing winds whipping over that portion of the Atlantic that can tear storms apart.

On the other hand, meteorologists said Florence "may evolve into a serious direct threat" and make landfall somewhere between southern New England the Carolinas next Wednesday or Thursday, AccuWeather.com reported. It is not yet known if Florence will make landfall.

The second storm is now a tropical wave off the west coast of Africa that in its early stages is far more advanced than either Florence or Disturbance 1.

Behind Florence are two tropical waves that are given a high chance to become tropical depressions within 2 to 5 days.

The next name on the list for the Atlantic Hurricane Season is Isaac.

The Emergency Measures Organisation is monitoring the storm's track.
