Looks Like Florence Will Impact Greater Danbury + Hudson Valley
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.
