Tropical activity calms down as Florence weakens into a Tropical Depression

Hurricane Florence made landfall Friday morning right next to Wilmington, NC. But, this weekend it was downgraded to tropical depression status. The tropical activity seems to be calming down a bit as most of the storms are losing strength and downgrading statuses.

Tropical Storm Joyce is expected to move east, curving out to sea in the Eastern part of the Atlantic. It is expected to weaken back into a Tropical Depression by Monday.

The National Hurricane Center had this tropical wave with a 20% chance for development, but unfavorable conditions are surrounding the Caribbean which should decrease chances of organization.

Tropical Depression Florence

Making landfall near Wilmington, North Carolina on Friday as a Category 1 hurricane, Tropical Depression Florence is still making a huge impact on the East Coast. Heavy rain, gusty winds, and even spin up tornadoes are still a huge issue as Florence weakens.
