WHAT'S NEW: The potential for flash flooding is slowly increasing for Saturday with Ian's tropical moisture pushing this way. The first half of the day will absolutely be a soaker.
WHAT'S NEXT: Going through the weekend, expect some tropical downpours and on/off scattered showers to come along with breezy to gusty winds. Next week looks & feels better (mostly) until we get to Friday afternoon.
TROPICS:
IAN - labeled as no longer a hurricane at 5 pm, as it made landfall after 2 p.m. near Georgetown, SC with 85 mph winds and then proceeded to transition and loose it's tropical characteristics. Either way, it will still be moving further inland, soaking the Carolinas and that rain moves up towards us this weekend.
There is another disturbance that has a medium, 60%, chance of becoming a named storm in the next 5 days. It is out in the Eastern Atlantic Ocean and poses us no threat.
