Fay Update -- Friday Morning

Tropical Storm Fay is still alive this Friday morning battering northern Florida with winds up to 45mph and heavy rains. Portions of northern Florida and southern Georgia could see up to 5 to 10 inches of rain from the storm . Localized areas could see even more.

Fay will slowly move along the Gulf Coast this weekend as it gradually weakens. Eventually, some remnant moisture from Fay should work its way back to the east toward the Carolinas. This will enhance our rain chances for the middle of next week. In fact, we may see a few showers and thunderstorms as early as late Monday. However, our rain chances should be higher for Tuesday through Thursday.

Elsewhere, there is more activity to watch in the tropics. Here's a look at what the National Hurricane Center is watching today....

The disturbances labeled 1 and 2 both have a medium chance for some slow development over the coming days. Stay tuned to News 14 Carolina for Weather on the Ones updates through the weekend for the latest...
