While Hurricane Florence has weakened, and is barely a tropical storm at this time. Joyce and Helene have weakened to Tropical Storms, and Isaac has weakened to post tropical storm remnants.
Florence is now a tropical storm, with sustained winds of 40 kts (45 mph), and a central low pressure of 995 mb. It is located at 33.6 N and 79.6 W and moving west west at 2 kts (2 mph). While the storm has weakened, it is still generating historic flooding and heavy rainfall.
In the visible satellite image, you can see that the eye is no longer visible on this storm, though there is a center of circulation over northeastern South Carolina.
On the infrared image, you can see that the eye wall on the west side has collapsed entirely. There is still strong convection on the east side, as that area is still over the Gulf Stream.
This system is beginning to fall apart. We won’t know the extent of the damage for a few days. However, with this storm weakening, I will probably start posting New Mexico weather again tomorrow.
Thank you for reading my post.
