It looks like it has a large area of bath water to travel over too.

Outer Banks could get destroyed and I could barely see a cloud here that's how much of a difference there is. It's 6 hours away.

GFS has the storm sitting over eastern North Carolina for a couple of days and then moving up the coast to New England.

It's interesting how slow the storm is now moving, almost stalled. Little things like this can make a big difference how it ultimately ends up affecting the east coast.

Euro and GFS in good agreement on future track of Florence at this time. Both show Florence making landfall over eastern NC and then stalling it there for days. Amazing rainfall totals are being shown on the modeling in that area with amounts as high as 35". Florence's impact in our area is currently believed to be confined to mostly rough surf and rip tides as modeling shows it to eventually move east or northeast and out to sea. However, there is still much uncertainty, as you would expect with a tropical system this many days out.

Yes still a lot of uncertainty. There has been a consistent hit on eastern North Carolina for a few days. I think that Florida and probably Georgia are being taken out as potential strikes. I think Virginia is becoming more in play.

How much rain in our (your former) area? One day and out next weekend?

We don't know if the storm will even reach up here after it stalls

NHC stating major hurricane impacts for NC/VA becoming likely.
Models mostly in agreement, landfall between Wilmington and Ocracoke/Cape Hatteras areas. And a several day stall.

Bryan - what are you thinking for your area? I understand you are slightly more inland...

GFS continues to show Florence not making landfall. Instead it stalls just off Cape Hatteras. That scenario would pummel the outer banks.

Not likely. There’s a very strong block, to the extent that Florence even stalls over or near NC until it’s eventually kicked out. As metsfan said, however, you never know especially this far out in time.
