That's almost double the wave heights documented on Tuesday, when the NHC said satellites had observed "an expansive area of wave heights 12 feet or greater" circulating around Hurricane Florence and peak waves of 45 feet near its center.

The "cone of error" in the forecast track only predicts where the storm's center might go, and even on its edges, winds can push a powerful storm surge into shore dozens of miles from where Florence's eyewall strikes land.

"Rainfall totals of 2 to 3 inches with isolated maximum amounts of 4 inches are possible across the south-central portion of the Dominican Republic, southwest Haiti and Jamaica", it said.

Eastern Daylight Time on Thursday, September 13, 2018, due the presence of Subtropical Storm Joyce (previously referred to as Invest 96L) over the Atlantic Ocean. "This storm is extremely unsafe". Its winds could approach Category 5 strength, which means winds of 157 miles per hour (253 kph) or higher.

The NHC said, "A Tropical Storm Warning means that tropical storm conditions are expected somewhere within the warning area within 24 to 36 hours".

"Helene has taken a very similar track to that of Ophelia a year ago, which is extremely unusual for an Atlantic hurricane", Nolan told us.

Tropical storm warnings were issued for Martinique, Dominica, and Guadeloupe.

Two high pressure ridges are still expected to be strong enough to force Florence to stall just before, or after, it makes landfall somewhere near the North Carolina/South Carolina border early Friday. Philippine authorities began evacuating thousands of people Thursday from the path of the typhoon, closing schools, readying bulldozers for landslides and placing rescuers and troops on full alert in the country's north. Florence, the most ominous for United States residents, is expected to make landfall today. Earlier forecasts showed that the storm was slated to directly hit around North and SC.
