*UPDATE* BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The latest report from the National Hurricane Center shows Hurricane Florence weaken to a category 1 hurricane, while its path shows possible impact to the East Coast of the United States next week.
Florence is projected to weaken through tonight. However, the National Hurricane Center says the conditions are favorable in the Atlantic for Florence to pick up strength on Monday and become a major hurricane again.
Florence is carrying 80 mph winds and may begin to move faster toward the west-northwest over the western Atlantic early next week.
“Swells generated by Florence will begin to affect Bermuda on Friday and will reach portions of the U.S. East Coast over the weekend,” said spokesperson for the National Hurricane Center.
“These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.”
At this time, there are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.
