Florida Governor To Declare State Of Emergency Ahead Of Possible Hurricane

“Michael” Could be in Our Forecast by End of Week

Maximum sustained winds are at 35 miles per hour, once they hit 39 miles per hour, we can officially call this storm Tropical Storm Michael (This will happen today).

NWS Charleston's latest advisory on Michael anticipates impacts along the SC coast as early as Sunday night, and minor to moderate impacts along the SC and Georgia coasts Monday until Thursday.

The latest track shows a weakening Michael moving either directly through, or at least near central Georgia as a tropical storm.

A hurricane warning from the National Weather Service was declared for the Alabama-Florida border to the Suwannee River in Florida.

According to the hurricane center, one potential impact from a Category 3 hurricane is that "electricity and water will be unavailable for several days to weeks after the storm passes".

Hurricane watches are already in place for parts of the panhandle, and tropical storm watches are in place for parts of south Georgia just outside our viewing area. It was expected to strengthen into Tropical Storm Michael on Sunday, and could become Hurricane Michael on Tuesday night or Wednesday. "In addition, Michael is expected to affect portions of the Florida Gulf Coast that are especially vulnerable to storm surge, regardless of the storm's exact track or intensity".

The storm is then forecast to move northeast along the Atlantic Coast and batter the Carolinas, which are still recovering from Hurricane Florence last month.

While in the Gulf, models are indicating that Michael may strengthen and become a hurricane before reaching the northeastern Gulf Coast.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Leslie continues its easterly path across the central Atlantic with maximum sustained winds of 60 miles per hour.

A tropical depression recently emerged in the Western Caribbean and on Sunday it developed into a Tropical Storm.

Michael could cause life-threatening flash floods and mudslides in parts of western Cuba, forecasts say, with rains of 3-7 inches (7-17 centimeters) expected.

According to NHC spokesman Dennis Feltgen, Michael is the 13th named storm of the 2018 hurricane season.

Winds were forecast to drop in intensity as the system tracks northeast over Alabama, Georgia and SC, reaching North Carolina by Thursday.

Michael was moving north-northeast at 3 miles per hour off Yucatan Peninsula as of the 5 p.m. Sunday update. There is still the chance for there to be tropical storm force winds in Charlotte.

Governor Rick Scott announced on Sunday that he will issue an executive order declaring a state of emergency for counties in the Florida Panhandle and Big Bend as the state continues to monitor and prepare for Tropical Storm Michael.

The Florida Keys are expected to get 2 to 4 inches of rain, and the Yucatan Peninsula could get 1 to 2 inches of rain.

Wind: tropical storm conditions are expected to first reach the coast within the warning area by tonight, making outside preparations hard or risky.
