already off the coast. but maybe the surf knows this is only the start of something bigger. there's a hurricane expected to make its way towards the united states. with its path still uncertain. it is wednesday night and the big story on "action news" tonight is joaquin. it is now a category three hurricane, just as of a minute or two ago. and the latest consensus has the storm making landfall to our south on sunday, but nobody at the shore is taking any chances.

trying to form. this is going to blast the bahamas. the southeast bahamas could be getting more than a foot of rain. it is still drifting to the southwest towards the bahamas and it will continue to do that for the next day or so. but then it looks like it will be making a turn to the north. i want to show you the spaghetti plots of the computer models. you can see something that has not changed, still a 650-mile spread between the models. there is still a chance the storm could head out to sea. but if you look where we have the consensus, most computer models bring it to shore near the outer banks of north carolina. i want to stress the actual track does not matter as much as the whole atmospheric set-up. and we have a stalled front, and we also have very strong blocking high pressure up to the north. the combination of the two opposing firsts will really siphon in winds out of the east over the next couple of days. that will bring us flooding rains and tremendous winds.
