More summer here; Florence moves through the Carolinas.

Florence has weakened from a hurricane to tropical storm, but devastation continues as it moves slowly westward at about 3 to 5 mph. Rain will be measured in feet, particularly in North Carolina, but much of South and North Carolina will struggle with the effects of this storm for weeks and probably months. Maximum sustained winds are near 70 mph, but falling slowly; nevertheless this will be an infamous storm in many respects.

Florence weakens a bit.
Tropical Storm Florence brings devastation.

The end of the work week will signal this weekend’s weather with more on the same expected. Highs were in the toasty middle and upper 80s with dew points in the oppressive upper 60s to lower 70s, a big jump from yesterday. Mowing your lawn will be extra taxing Saturday and Sunday.

Mostly sunny skies and hot high temps in the 80s will take you through Applefest weekend. Make sure you stay hydrated for your outdoor plans. Lows the next few mornings will feature readings in the muggy 60s, so perhaps patchy fog chances will pop up.

We do it all over again heading into Monday. In the meantime, we will also bring the details on the slow movement and devastation of Florence in the southeastern United States.

Have a pleasant and safe weekend!
