9/10/2018 @ 5am: With the local heavy rain expected to start winding down later today, all eyes will turn to Hurricane Florence. The first chart shows the latest forecast landfalls from the various models we have access to. They show Florence going ashore somewhere along the Carolina coast anywhere from near Myrtle Beach to the Cape Hatteras/Ocracoke Island area. The official Hurricane Center forecast (middle chart) has the storm hitting near Wilmington North Carolina Thursday evening, but keep in mind that the storm could threaten anywhere within the forecast "cone". Also remember, impacts from the storm will extend far out away from the actual center. The third chart shows that Tropical Storm force winds could be felt along the Carolina coast as early as Wednesday evening.
