Tropical storm warning posted for part of North Carolina

Additionally, more than 50 members of FDNY units have been deployed to Texas to assist in rescue efforts, including the Urban Search and Rescue Team (USAR) New York Task Force-1, Incident Management Team (IMT) and Disaster Assistance Response Team.

The storm system that could become Irma was expected to track up the mid-Atlantic coast Tuesday before moving out to sea Wednesday. We'll see a nice mix of sun and clouds. The sunshine will be abundant today, with temperatures mostly in the 70s once again. "We're expecting torrential rains, winds, floods and chaotic conditions, and we're ready for it".

Monday: Rain and thunderstorms linger in Florida and spread into eastern North Carolina and eastern Virginia. No matter where you are, expect a cloudy and breezy day with nearly October-like temperatures struggling to reach even 70 degrees this afternoon. Skies will clear out, humidity will be low, and highs will reach the middle and upper 70s.

A period of rain is forecast from Charleston, South Carolina, to Wilmington, North Carolina; Norfolk, Virginia; Ocean City, Maryland; Philadelphia; Atlantic City, New Jersey; New York City and Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts. There should be a sharp cut-off along, and to the northwest, of the I-95 corridor, making this a southeast New Jersey special. It is likely one will be needed for counties to the north at some point tomorrow or Thursday. If we do have a situation occur, please pay attention to emergency preparedness officials, make emergency preparations for you and your family and above all, use good sense.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 launched: Specs, price, availability
The Galaxy Note 8 ships with Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box, and will get Android 8 .0 Oreo update in the coming months. A 3,300 mAh battery is packed inside, but just how long that keeps this monster of a phone running for remains to be seen.

That front will deliver a much cooler and drier air mass for Friday.

LABOR DAY WEEKEND: Rain and storm chances drop off considerably and only isolated to widely scattered activity is possible. A cold front approaching over the weekend may finally pull Harvey's remnants somewhere, probably more northward into the MS and OH river valleys rather than eastward toward us.

Regardless of development, heavy rain is possible over portions of the Cabo Verde Islands through Wednesday. Again, a few bands may brush the outer regions of our state but higher odds will remain away from our immediate area. The timing and details may change, so stay tuned. So it may not be a ideal weekend, but I would expect dry weather both before and after any chance of mid-weekend rain.
