Hurricane Hype? Here’s What You Need To Know About Florence
There has been a lot of talk about the approaching Hurricane Florence, but what do we really need to know on the SouthCoast? ABC 6's Jeff Desnoyers lets you know.
From what category it is to where it will actually make landfall, a lot has changed about Hurricane Florence since she first started being tracked.
Currently a category 4 hurricane, Florence is going to hit with some serious force.
But not around here.
Florence is on track to hit North Carolina pretty hard and much of the coast down there has been warned to evacuate.
But as ABC meteorologist Jeff Desnoyers told us, this storm is going to stay much more south than the SouthCoast.
For us the weather this weekend will actually be very nice. Sunny and warmer than most of the week.
He says some people may even want to hit the beach this weekend, but should be prepared for swimming to be closed when they get there.
That's because the edges of Hurricane Florence will very likely have residual effects that those on the water and at the beach will experience.
Desnoyers says enhanced waves for boaters, rough surf and dangerous rip currents will be the extent of the storm for our neck of the woods.
But even though Florence isn't headed to the SouthCoast, hurricane season is in full affect and there are more storms that meteorologists are keeping their eyes on for sure.
