MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- Florence continues to be a heavy rain-maker for portions of the eastern U.S. after delivering devastating floods in parts of the Carolinas. In the meantime, Joyce continues to decay in the open Atlantic. The remnants of Isaac have a low chance of making a comeback.

Florence: Tropical Depression Florence is no longer having advisories issued from the National Hurricane Center. The Weather Prediction Center, however, is issuing advisories on the rain potential that the depression can still bring. 

Here is an excerpt from the 11:00pm advisory from Sunday night:

RAINFALL: Florence is expected to produce heavy and excessive
rainfall over the next couple of days.  Portions of the Carolinas,
Mid-Atlantic States, and Southern New England are expected to
receive an additional 2 to 5 inches of rain...with isolated maximum
amounts of 8 inches possible.

Joyce: Tropical Depression Joyce will continue to meander in the northern Atlantic Ocean, without much of an opportunity to strengthen. It is no threat to land, including the U.S.

Remnants of Isaac: Near Jamaica, the remnants of what was once Isaac still have low potential to re-develop as they travel west/northwest toward the Yucatán Peninsula. At this point, it is not anticipated to be a significant weather maker for the Big Bend and South Georgia.

The remnants do have a 20% chance of developing in the next five days.

You can catch the forecast on ABC 27 News starting at 5:00 each weekday morning, as well as ABC 27 News at Noon. First Alert Chief Meteorologist Casanova Nurse has your forecast at 5:00, 5:30, 6:00, and 11:00 this evening.
