Hurricane Joaquin @ Category 4

Hurricane Joaquin @ Category 4

If you have outside events scheduled this weekend, you may want to make sure those plans haven’t changed.

Hurricane Joaquin continued to strengthen in the Atlantic Ocean Thursday afternoon, becoming an extremely dangerous Category 4 storm.

Ahead of Joaquin, much of central and eastern North Carolina is expected to see several inches of rain as a cold front combines with an area of low pressure on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Some spots could see between 4 and 6 inches of rain.

The National Weather Service has issued flash flood watches for the entire area from 8 p.m. Thursday through 8 p.m. Sunday, warning of flooding in low-lying, flood-prone areas. State Emergency Management officials said downed trees could also be an issue.
