"While it is too early to change plans, all interests in Bermuda and along the East Coast of the USA should closely monitor the movement of Florence over this weekend and next week", AccuWeather hurricane expert Dan Kottlowski said.
The earliest that storm-force winds are expected to reach the coast is Tuesday night, if Florence does not veer off, according to the National Weather Service.
The east coast never seems to catch a break when it comes to powerful hurricanes.
The NHC encouraged residents along the east coast to review their hurricane plans.
Meanwhile, two tropical waves off the African coast have become better organized, and forecasters give them 90 percent chances of tropical development in the next two days.

This is why he accepted the position with the stipulation that he would not commit beyond the end of this congressional session. When Kyl joins the Senate, Republicans will restore their 51-to-49 advantage over Democrats for the first time this year.
However, meteorologists predict that this weakening is only momentary and believe that within the next 36 hours, Florence will regain intensity and again become a major hurricane. "This setup will guide Florence on a west to northwesterly course into next week".
As of Wednesday, the hurricane had maximum sustained winds of 125 miles per hour, making it a Category 3 storm.
Still, this storm could take a sharp curve to the north and head out sea, we have to acknowledge that this storm may directly hit the east coast. It eventually would make landfall in southern Florida.
"While it's still too early to know the storm's path, we know we have to be prepared", Cooper said in a news release. It was about 2,000 miles from the USA coastline, still too far out for a confident landfall prediction.
Although it is quite a distance away, swells generated by Florence will begin to affect Bermuda Saturday, and Florida along with most of the East Coast of the US will see increasing waves and rip currents this weekend. "If you don't have a hurricane emergency kit, this is the time to assemble one". They will be named Helene and Isaac, when they achieve sufficient organization, which is expected.
