Ian’s heavy rain coming to Virginia [Video]

Cool rain on Friday, then a large break for most of Saturday with temperatures in the 70s.

After briefly dipping below hurricane status as it crossed the Florida peninsula, Hurricane Ian will come onshore for the second time on Friday. The center will come inland along the South Carolina coast.

Unlike the first landfall near Fort Myers, Fla., winds will not be as strong, but they will still be capable of scattered damage at the coast. More broadly, heavy rain, rough surf and coastal flooding will impact areas from Charleston, S.C., northward through Myrtle Beach, S.C., and Wilmington, N.C.

The storm is transitioning from a fully tropical one to an extratropical one, meaning the source of its energy is shifting away from warm ocean water to a hybrid of warm ocean water and strong winds in the upper atmosphere.
