5:48 pm

5:49 pm
that will help push it back to the south and european faster but again both of them eventually start making the loop by sunday pulling away from the coast. it's just when they start to turn american was to start to turn early and european wants to get closer to us and start to turn later you also notice they are far apart and that tells us a lot of uncertainty. that's also been a trend so we had a lot of weight and see moments. as for our weather the impact have not changed less wind and less rain. friday morning we start to see a few scattered showers in the area. not heavy rain but regular scattered showers to the day. there is the heavy rain coming into view to the south as we get into late friday night we will have some dry time before early saturday morning and heavy rain arrives elite south of the triangle and that will continue through lunchtime saturday and it saturday afternoon we start to clear out.
