National Weather Service 5am Update, Friday, Oct. 2
Hurricane Joaquin - Category 4
"The forecast models continue to indicate
Frontal System Forecast
While our prayers are with those in the Bahamas, at this time no alerts have been forecasted for Hurricane Joaquin's path. There is always a chance of moderate coastal flooding and dune erosion along the shore areas even if Joaquin remains at sea.
The Rain which has been forecast is part of an already established Frontal System affecting most of the East Coast. Scattered Rains and Gusty Winds should continue into Tuesday, regardless of Joaquin.
