    Soak. It. In. We're in the final stretch of the summer season... but clearly it's not looking to bright on this Wednesday. After what was left of Hurricane Florence came roaring through southern New England on Tuesday, temperatures stayed on the cooler side. In fact, we even saw temperatures drop during the daytime hours on Wednesday! Since sunrise on Wednesday (official at 6:30), temperatures fell 4°.
  • Florence's remnants bring flash flooding

    ...- Mark Searles
    It was a day of soaking rain across southern New England as what was left of "Florence" roared through. Flash flooding developed across Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts in the mid afternoon hours. An NBC10 viewer took this video of flooding in a parking lot in Narragansett around 3pm! Cheryl Sherman posted some pictures of the flooding from Narragansett as well: Rain totals were impressive but they were also highly variable: Reports from our local weather spotters.
  • Florence makes New England debut

    ...- Zack Green
    Hurricane Florence was and continues to amount historic amounts of rain in North and South Carolina. At this point, the system has been dropped to a "Tropical Depression" but the impact will be felt for days if not weeks. Showers will be slow to start but expect a dose of heavy downpours in the afternoon and evening. In southern New England, we have been tracking the remnants of this massive storm and it will bring us our fair share of rain on Tuesday.

  • ...- R.J. HEIM, STORM TEAM 10
    While the last full Summer Weekend of 2018 lived up to the rest of the warm and humid season this year, it will roll into the beginning of the upcoming week as well. Autumn officially arrives this coming Saturday at 9:54 p. m. The remains of what was once Hurricane then Tropical Storm Florence that has battered the Carolinas with multiple feet of rain, causing catastrophic flooding, will push through Southern New England at a much quicker pace Tuesday.
  • Focus on Florence

    ...- Kelly Bates
    Hello sunshine! Sunday will finish up the weekend with more sunshine than Saturday. As a result, temperatures will be a bit milder with highs in the lower 80s in the interior and the 70s along the coast. Sunday will have a lower rip current risk at Southern New England beaches. Surf has gone down locally for today as now Tropical Depression Florence is well inland in the Carolinas. Florence looks to track through Southern New England Tuesday.
  • Last Weekend of Summer

    ...- Kelly Bates
    Here we are! It's the last weekend of summer. High pressure is keeping us dry this last weekend of summer although sunshine will be rather limited Saturday. Patchy fog will roll back in overnight tonight and will be here Sunday morning. Sunday will see more sunshine and temperatures both weekend days will top out near 80. Humidity will be muggy, but not oppressive. Monday is looking pretty similar to Sunday in sky and temperatures.
  • Remnant rain from Florence COULD be a soaker for us

    ...- MARK SEARLES, NBC10 CHIEF METEOROLOGIST
    Although Tropical Storm Florence will slowly move through North & South Carolina this weekend, we are keep a close eye on the future storm for early next week. Some signs suggest that what's left of the storm COULD bring several inches of rain to southern New England. Florence was barely moving to the west at 5 mph or less Friday night and this slow motion is expected to continue for Saturday & Sunday. Tropical Storm Florence still near Charleston, SC Saturday evening.
  • A few interesting sites to monitor during Florence

    ...- MARK SEARLES, NBC10 CHIEF METEOROLOGIST
    As Hurricane Florence makes landfall across coastal North Carolina there are several key web sites and twitter feeds to keep an eye on if you are interested in the developments to our south. Florence as of Thursday evening. A good first place to start is the National Weather Service out of Wilmington, NC: The National Hurricane Center Surge Twitter feed is a good one as well.
  • Tracking Hurricane Florence's storm surge

    ...- MARK SEARLES, NBC10 CHIEF METEOROLOGIST
    While tracking a hurricane or tropical storm often times we find ourselves focused on the storm intensity, category or top wind speeds. But as the storm approaches land it's the storm surge that should become the main focus. After all, the storm surge, or rise of water ABOVE high tide level, is often the most dangerous part of a land falling hurricane.

    The Atlantic Hurricane season is just past its peak (September 10th is historically the most active day), but we're certainly in the thick of it. With two hurricanes, a tropical storm, and another pair of systems that are expected to develop, September is living up to its name.

  • Florence update and potential impact locally

    ...- MARK SEARLES, NBC10 CHIEF METEOROLOGIST
    As Hurricane Florence moves closer to the North Carolina coast, forecast model guidance continues to review the storm's impact on many levels. With a land-falling major hurricane the immediate concern is always centered on the storm surge, the  potentially deadly push of water forced ashore as the storm moves in. In this particular case the surge is expected to range from 2-13 feet across the Carolinas!

  • ...- R.J. HEIM, STORM TEAM 10
    As of Sunday night's forecast, Hurricane Florence is expected to become a major hurricane as it continues its trek towards the North and South Carolina coasts this week. Here in Southern New England, the remains of what was once "Gordon", now in Western Pennsylvania, are pushing in this direction. The 'squeeze play' between High Pressure to our north and "Gordon" are increasing the wind here, and will push up high surf, rip currents, and waves to south and east facing coastal areas.
  • Tropically Enhanced Forecast

    ...- Kelly Bates
    Sunday is a true taste of fall with temperatures only topping out in the mid-60s. Sky conditions will be cloudy through the day. A warm front will swing through Monday and will contain the remnants of what once was Tropical Storm Gordon. As a result, we could see periods of heavy rain and the chance of thunderstorms. Rainfall could top half an inch according to the GFS model. Temperatures will get a boost as well and we’ll go back into the 80s starting Tuesday.
  • Taste of Fall

    ...- Kelly Bates
    Much cooler temperatures but a good deal of clouds will take us through this weekend. A cold front currently drapes along the south coast of Southern New England will bring lots of clouds and the chance of early showers. Temperatures will be about 5 degrees cooler than average Saturday. A mix of sun and clouds is expected this afternoon. Sunday will also have a lot of clouds in the morning but we should see more sunshine mixing in.
