If you have friends or family on the east coast, please check in with them and be sure they are preparing for landfall
of Hurricane Florence on Thursday-Friday. Link below for advice on prepping, and check for updates from the National Hurricane Center
and local meteorologists.
They are not seeing much of a change in the direction of Hurricane Florence. Sea surface temperatures are very warm along her projected path, so some intensification is expected, although SST is not the only factor.
From National Hurricane Center: Hurricane Florence is now a CAT 4 with max winds of 135 mph. Here are two different models, showing slightly different solutions. EURO at 96 hours.
GFS at 96 hours.
Slightly different scenarios. Point of landfall is not as important as the overall regional impact this storm may have, Lots of rain, flash floods, etc.

Hurricane #Florence continues to strengthen, max winds are now 140 mph. Further strengthening is forecast and it is expected to be a large and powerful hurricane as it nears the East Coast. See below for a 1-stop page for the latest #Florence info:
This storm looks like it will make a direct hit on the region, hopefully it will move quickly rather than sit and unload on the coast. The Houston hurricane was so bad last year because it did just sit right over the city for so long. Some areas might get 40 inches! Would be nice if Colorado got forty inches in one year!
