Hurricane Maria Expected To Affect Mid-Atlantic Shores Next Few Days

Other overseas territories including the British Virgin Islands and Anguilla heavily hit by Irma, have escaped the worst of Maria, with Montserrat also faring better than expected.

However, Maria's weakening would not prevent parts of the East Coast from feeling some direct impacts.

High surf and unsafe rip currents generated by Maria will begin arriving on the Southeast coast this weekend.

While Hurricane Maria isn't expected to have a direct impact on SC, it still could cause risky rip currents here, and maybe a bit more to the north of our state.

Hurricane Lee was still far away from land Sunday evening, with the center almost 900 miles off the coast of Bermuda.

In the tropics, Hurricane Maria has made a north-northwestward turn and is starting to move away from the southeastern Bahamas.

Jose is upwelling already cool waters and Maria won't be coming north at a fast clip (which is how we get our stronger storms). High pressure will become the dominant weather feature in the wake of Jose, so we can look forward to a nice weekend to kick off the new season.

- The forecast track of Hurricane Maria has shifted slightly west, bringing a small sliver of North Carolina's coast into the cone of uncertainty.

CVS is working to combat the opioid crisis
With counseling on secure storage and disposal of opioid pills, the CVS pharmacists hope to limit easy access to the pills. "We see firsthand the impact of the alarming and rapidly growing epidemic of opioid addiction and misuse", said Larry J.

There is some risk to North Carolina from Maria.

At 5 p.m. the National Hurricane Center issued a Tropical Storm Watch for the coast of North Carolina from Surf City northward to the North Carolina/Virginia border, including the Albemarle and Pamlico Sounds.

Hurricane Maria did weaken some after it passed over the mountains of Puerto Rico, and its wind field almost doubled in geographic size, which typically happens when a cyclone weaken or fluctuates in intensity.

Maria is not now forecast to impact metro Atlanta.

Tropics remain active with two named storms churning in the Atlantic. The main timeframe for the chance of gusty winds and rain along the Outer Banks will be Tuesday night through very early Thursday morning.

Computer models are all over the place on Lee, with both its track and intensity forecasts.

Lee has intensified into a hurricane, but is expected to stay more than 1,000 miles away from Florida and just loop around in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.

Lee is expected to stay far out in the Atlantic through the next five days and not pose a threat to land.
