Hurricane Florence remains a Category 4 storm this morning as it continues toward the North Carolina Coast. The storm has slowed down a bit and is expected to make landfall between Wilimington and Moorehead City sometime early Friday. Again today, the focus is on two forecast models, the European and the GFS. The European model has Florence making landfall a little to the south. The GFS still has Florence stalling near Cape Hatteras.
For now, the Eastern Shore is expected to receive 4 to 6 inches of rain. There is also a 40-50% chance the Shore will experience
For now, it’s too soon to determine the exact effects Florence will have on the Shore. Continue to monitor WESR for the latest information. For now, the Eastern Shore is not included in any Hurricane or Tropical Storm watches issued for Florence. For now, the Eastern Shore is predicted to have a 40-60% chance of having Tropical Storm Force Winds and 4 to 6 inches of rain could fall. These numbers could change as the track of Florence continues to be refined over the next few days.
