Impacts from Florence will only continue to worsen in North and South Carolina as heavy rain and runoff continues. The local area can expect seasonable, average weather through the middle of next week.


The Tropics: Hurricane Florence made landfall near Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina around 6:15am Friday morning.  Deadly storm surge, destructive winds and torrential rain will continue through Friday. Water inundation forecasts account for a long duration east to west wind flow that will cause water to pile up as high 9 to 13 feet as the flow of the Neuse and Pamlico Rivers reverses.
