JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Ian has been downgraded to a post-tropical cyclone over North Carolina after dry air finally infiltrated the storm as well as wind shear with the jet stream and land interaction after landfall. 

There are still some impacts to be had from the storm though. Especially for parts of the Appalachians this weekend. 

From the NHC: RAINFALL: Ian is expected to produce 2 to 4 inches with local maxima of 6 inches across portions of the Central Appalachians and coastal Mid-Atlantic.

Here on the first coast tide levels continue to remain as trapped water in our rivers and inlets combined with high tide continue to push levels above average. This includes the St. Johns. Water levels will remain high through the weekend into next week until the river can fully discharge the increased flow following Hurricane Ian.
