The weather is finally clearing across North Carolina but the problems with flooding will continue much of this weekend and into the weekend. It’s a very bad situation for North Carolina.
Out focus turns to the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic as the remains of hurricane Florence need to move through today into Tuesday. As you can see on the map above, heavy rains will impact areas from the eastern Ohio Valley into New England where 1-6 inches of rain will fall. Some of these areas of already saturated from Gordon and any heavy rains means flooding will occur again.
Severe storms will also occur in the Mid-Atlantic. These will be scattered storms with the potential to produce quick hitting tornadoes and damaging wind gusts. Florence still has a lot of spin left so that is why the tornado threat exists for that area.
The HRRR model below gives you an idea of the rainfall through this evening. Keep in mind, more rain will fall tonight into Tuesday.
