It'd be great if this storm weakens, even better if it dies or turns away.

Florence has plenty of time to recover from this eyewall replacement cycle, and hurricanes usually begin to re-intensify within 12 hours of closing off their new eyewall. Florence had closed off its new eyewall as of 9:10 am EDT Wednesday, according to data from the Air Force hurricane hunters

After an ERC is complete, a hurricane’s wind field will expand, subjecting a larger area of the ocean to strong winds and allowing a larger storm surge to build. At 11 am EDT Wednesday, Florence was a slightly above-average sized hurricane, with tropical storm-force winds that extended out up to 175 miles from the center. Hurricane-force winds extended out 70 miles from the center. These numbers will increase today as the hurricane recovers from the ERC.

Exactly. This is anything but doom — but out of sight out of mind, eh — and Wilmington/Wrightsville Beach, NC could be forever changed. Sucks. If it stalls, it’ll drop 40 inches of rain in places and that would be catastrophic.

The Euro Ensemble FTW.

That's good news! Weakens further with each update from the National Hurricane Center. What is Florence now.. a CAT-2?

Rain will still be problematic but it certainly isn't the end of life as we know it event the news was pushing a few days ago.

The National Hurricane Center has buried the weakening to CAT-2, deep in it's 11pm public advisory.

The rain is still going to be a major problem but hopefully the winds dying down will also help with the height of storm surge....

Yes...every hurricane brings lots of rain. Heck, I recall seeing a video of people in boats rowing down the streets of a New Jersey town, about 2 months ago. Or was that Pennsylvania? You don't even need a hurricane, for huge amounts of water to fall.

Course they did, cat2 doesn't bring in viewers or clicks.

This seems like a hurricane that really wasn't "well rooted"...or whatever the term is. Florence exploded from a Cat-1 to Cat-4 in 48 hours. Now it's returning to Cat-1, from Cat-4, just a quickly.

Contrast with Hurricanes IRMA and MARIA last year. They strengthened and went over various land masses and ocean currents without weakening much.

Horray and Bravo to the multitudes of locals who decided to hunker-down and declined the highly pressured Mandatory Evacuation Orders that was almost Demanded by local & State officials...

the scare tactics and threats of 'killer winds + storm surge' became unwound as time & events progressed and the 'Storm track Models' became obsolete even as they were published/pushed by the doom peddlers reading from a propaganda script.

it seems the long range victim of Florence will be the NC Turkey Farmers, as bands of chaotic storms are thrown off the Hurricane in the direction of Raleigh NC


my long time friend had decided to outrun the hurricane by going north to VA on Thursday morning, it seems she will encounter a travel landscape of wind & rain instead of the previously anticipated clear skies (because of the faulty Cat.4 hurricane model turning to the south-west)


Whew, what a relief from the doom forecasted by officials since the Tuesday Evacuation order made on Monday noon when the storm was still some 1,500 miles out in the Atlantic...at any rate i still got trees in some degree of stress from
hurricane Matthew -> the trees are leaning towards the house & power line so I do not tempt fate by blowing 'Raspberries' at Mother Nature

When Isabel hit land... it had downgraded from a 5 to a 2... kinda similar to what Flo is doing out there in the ocean before it hits. Isabel still caused awful damage across the EC.

Just because Flo has downgraded from a 4 to a 2 doesn't mean it isn't gona pack major damage.
I'm not a meteorologist to do an official comparison of the two storms though. Every storm is different.
I think Flo is moving a bit slower than Isabel.

I'm not doing doom porn either. I live in the hurricane zone on the EC so I've seen the damage a hurricane can do is all.

Well thats something to be grateful for...There's a huge difference between a cat 2 and a cat 4 .. One is devastating damage and the other is some downed trees and power lines. Look at Homestead Florida after Andrew and the downed trees from Isabel are nothing.
However I will say that a Cat 2 is no walk in the park either and I have family in south eastern north carolina right near Cape Fear in the bulls eye.
Weve had cat 2 here a lot. They cause trouble for sure. A week without power is not fun unless you're camping and have planned to live without power. Gas stations and ATM machines both need electricity. Grocery stores can only stock dry goods without power. Generators only power so much.
Still grateful that this storm is weakening.

generators only power so much, seriously? generators power pretty much whatever you want them to power. now buying a small generator at Wal-mart won't power much. but that is because they are only designed to power smaller things. but you don't buy a small generator for things like stores. i go to a mall where the entire mall, and it's a pretty big one with over 800 stores/restaurants (including TWO Krappy Kream donuts), 11 theater screens plus 1 IMAX, a bowling alley, and even a 1,500 seat concert hall, at 5,360,000 sq ft. all of it being powered by generators when the power goes out. it's called being properly prepared, or not being properly prepared. all the choice of those who run or own stores. and fuel is never an issue, because all they do when the power goes out is to attach a quick release hand wheel to the fuel pumps to pump fuel. i'm still amazed at how backwards and unprepared for things like power outages the US and Canada are. you seriously would have thought that they would have learned from that huge multistate/and parts of Canada blackout that happened several years ago. but nope, they have not learned a thing. still woefully unprepared for a lack of electricity. and it's not like things like hurricanes, tornadoes, ice storms, windstorms and the like never happen.

Are we really calling this all just doom porn? We already have known for a few days that the biggest threat of this storm was gonna be flooding and storm surge. Did we not take any lessons from Hurricane Harvey, because this has a similar look to it. If it stalls off the coast of North Carolina before heading South its going to pump in a huge storm surge, and the rain amounts are going to be catastrophic. widespread rain totals of 20 to 40 inches can be incredibly devastating and people need to be out of those areas.
