* Until 1015 AM EDT Thursday.

* At 720 AM EDT, emergency management continues to report widespread
flooding across the warned area. Although rainfall from Florence

covers interstates. Some neighborhoods are cut off. Rivers,
creeks, and tributaries are rising, flooding even more areas and
slowing the recession of high water. People in the warned area
should not travel, and be prepared for widespread flooding of a
magnitude greater than Floyd and Matthew.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Wilmington, Florence, Myrtle Beach, Lumberton, Conway, North Myrtle
Beach, Leland, Bennettsville, Hartsville, Marion, Dillon, Oak
Island, Lake City, Darlington, Cheraw, Carolina Beach, Whiteville,
Mullins, Burgaw and Surfside Beach.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams, urban areas, highways, streets and underpasses as
well as other drainage areas and low lying spots.

Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image

 

Sunshine will return to southeastern North Carolina, thanks to a front and high pressure swept in on the backside of Florence. While temperatures may have a summery feel in the short-term, temperatures in the afternoon will gradually trend lower by the weekend and early next week. This pleasant weather will no doubt aide in the recovery efforts taking place regionally.

National Weather Service-issued Flash Flood Warnings continue for all of southeastern North Carolina.

WEDNESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY:
Enjoy abundant sunshine, cooler, drier breezes and few clouds, as northerly high pressure makes its presence felt in the Carolinas. Temperatures will top out in the middle and upper 80s during the day and fall to the upper 60s and low 70s at night. Widespread lowland flooding will continue to be unavoidable; some spots that have never flooded will flood, especially along rivers and estuaries. Read more about the record-setting river levels here.

THE WEEKEND AND BEYOND:
Autumn arrives at 9:54 p.m. Saturday with the Autumnal Equinox. Overall, high pressure moves away, allowing level moisture to return, promoting sea breeze shower and storm chances of about 20-30% during this time. Temperatures are forecast for the middle or low 80s during the day and middle and upper 60s at night.

ELSEWHERE IN THE TROPICS: Joyce degenerated into a remnant low south of the Azores Tuesday night. No other tropical development is expected over the next few days.
