As the brunt of Hurricane Florence starts to weaken in the Carolinas, forecasters are tracking where the storm heads next. Could Greater Danbury and the Hudson Valley be in its path?

For days, Hurricane Florence dumped record amounts of rainfall in the Carolinas, causing major flooding. Now that the storm is starting to gain some speed, the National Weather Service says that Florence will get sucked up along a front, hitching a ride along the jet stream towards our area.

It's still unclear how much of an impact the remnants of Florence will have on our area, but it sure looks like we will see some heavy rain and possibly some gusty winds by Tuesday. Here's the official word on Florence from the National Weather Service:

Moderate to heavy rainfall will impact portions of the Northeast...By Monday night, with Florence forecast to begin turning to the northeast, the heavy rain threat is expected to spread from western Pennsylvania into New York, reaching into central New England early Tuesday.

NBC Connecticut 30 Meteorologist Ryan Sweeney posted this on their Facebook page:

Here's the official National Weather Service Forecast for Greater Danbury and the Hudson Valley:

Monday Night
A chance of showers, then showers and possibly a thunderstorm after 9pm. Low around 69. South wind 5 to 7 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%. New rainfall amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible.
Tuesday
Periods of rain and possibly a thunderstorm. Some of the storms could produce heavy rainfall. High near 77. South wind around 9 mph, with gusts as high as 21 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90%. New rainfall amounts between 1 and 2 inches possible.
Tuesday Night
Showers, mainly before 7pm. Low around 62. North wind 6 to 9 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%. New precipitation amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible.
Since the storm will be traveling over land, most of the gusty winds will die down, however the heavy rain will continue and could dump between 2-4" inches on us. Of course any forecast is subject to change, especially when it comes to a tropical system like this.
