Florence has weakened to a tropical depression, but flash flooding and major flooding are still concerns for the Carolinas, according to Severe Weather Team 2 meteorologist Katie Walls.
The latest 5 a.m. advisory shows Florence moving west at 8 MPH with gusts up to 45 MPH.
In Georgia, a wind advisory issued for Rabun and Habersham has been extended to 6 p.m. Sunday. Gusts to 40 MPH will be possible mainly above 3,000 feet, Walls said.
As Florence moves to the west, parts of Georgia will feel some remnants of the storm.
On and off showers in association with #Florence could impact Sunday plans, especially in NE and E GA. I’m not expecting strong or severe storms. Clouds will keep temps down in the mid-80s for highs. I’m tracking the rain moving in starting at 6AM! #gawx pic.twitter.com/xlQT028sdZ
