(NHC)“Florence has continued to slow down, and radar fixes over the past couple hours suggest that Florence has possibly stalled due to a re-organization of the eye/eyewall,” according to the NHC’s discussion. Florence will then make a slow westward movement to central South Carolina over the next 72 hours. Then, Florence will become an extratropical cyclone and will “northward and northeastward along the Appalachian Mountains,” according to the discussion.It added: “Radar data indicate that Florence may be developing an outer eyewall. If this trend continues, then little change to the intensity is likely until landfall occurs in about 24 hours due in part to the low vertical wind shear conditions and the warm, deep waters of the Gulfstream current.”U.S. forecasters said that the storm is slated to weaken after landfall.
