FLORENCE WEAKENS SLIGHTLY 125 MPH CATEGORY 3
We continue to be under the influence of a decaying cold front and a tropical flow from off the ocean. The humidity is very high with dew points in the 70s in many areas and temperatures not that much higher. Clouds are everywhere and there are downpours that have fired up on the radars. On the satellite loop you can see the northern part of the cloud shield from Hurricane Florence which is continuing its march toward the Carolina coast. We will have more on Florence below.
There are no important changes in our outlook for the next several days. We will be in this humidity right into next week. Clouds and downpours are possible the next 2 days with temperatures by day in the 70s for Thursday and Friday and nights will in the upper 60s to near 70 with clouds and the occasional downpour. Saturday and Sunday high pressure building across New England from the big upper high will dry things out somewhat so that we will have a mix of sun and clouds both days, no downpours, but the humidity will be on the high side. There will be no impact from the landfalling Hurricane Florence wherever it ultimately winds up.
