Tropical Storm Ophelia is making landfall in North Carolina Saturday morning, while another disturbance is on the cusp of becoming a tropical depression or a tropical storm as it swirls off the coast of Africa.
As a cold front continues pressing eastward out of the West, it will morph into a multiday severe weather threat into the nation’s midsection – also right on time as the start of astronomical fall signals the beginning of the second severe weather season.
Tropical Storm Ophelia nearly reached hurricane strength Friday evening as the storm makes its final approach toward the North Carolina coastline early Saturday morning, with landfall likely just before or around sunrise near Morehead City.
