FORECAST IN DETAIL

While it will feel very tropical now through the weekend, the whole true storm campaign should stay well in our south. A few showers and thunderstorms could pop up anytime, but they're probably short in nature. Heavy rainfall is possible given the abundance of moisture, with the greatest risk expected on Friday afternoon. Any significant amount of rain from Florence would be unlikely until the beginning of next week, if at all.
