Projections show a meandering course for a southerly pass through Bermuda waters on Tuesday, but the NHC said a variety of models were in play as wind shear jostled the storm. However Florence has still maintained a solid core overnight and upper air winds are forecast to begin relaxing today. 4 strength with 130 miles per hour winds by Wednesday. Parts of Iowa have seen more than 10 inches in the past few days. NHC added that the risk of direct impact from the storm along the U.S. East Coast over the next week has increased but there it is is too soon to determine location, magnitude and timing of the impact.
