Hurricane Michael

Hurricane Michael has strengthened to Category 2 intensity, and is forecast to strike the Florida Panhandle at least as strong as a Category 3 with dangerous storm surge flooding, destructive winds and flooding rainfall.

Michael will also bring heavy rain and strong winds to other parts of the southeastern United States after it moves inland.

"Michael could develop into a potentially catastrophic event for the northeastern Gulf Coast," the National Weather Service office in Tallahassee, Florida, wrote in its area forecast discussion Monday afternoon.

Michael could be the strongest hurricane to landfall along the stretch of Florida's Panhandle Gulf Coast in 13 years. Michael is currently centered about 360 miles south of Panama City, Florida, and is moving north.

A storm surge warning is in effect from the Okaloosa/Walton County line in Florida to Anclote River, Florida. This means life-threatening storm surge inundation is a danger in the warning area within 36 hours.

Storm surge watches are in effect from Anclote River, Florida, to Anna Maria Island, Florida, including Tampa Bay, and from the Alabama/Florida border to the Okaloosa/Walton County line in Florida. This means life-threatening storm surge inundation is possible in the watch area within 48 hours.

A hurricane warning is posted for the Florida Gulf coast from the Alabama/Florida border to Suwanee River, Florida, including Pensacola, Panama City and Tallahassee.

The hurricane warning also extends inland to southwestern Georgia, including Albany. Hurricane warnings are issued 36 hours before the anticipated arrival of tropical-storm-force winds (39-plus mph), which is when outside preparations become dangerous.

Tropical storm warnings are in effect from the Alabama/Florida border westward to the Mississippi/Alabama border and from Suwannee River, Florida, southward to Chassahowitzka, Florida.

The tropical storm warning also extends inland to portions of southern Alabama and southwestern Georgia, including Mobile, Alabama, and Valdosta, Georgia. This means tropical storm conditions are expected somewhere within the warning area within 36 hours.

Tropical storm watches have been posted from Chassahowitzka, Florida, to Anna Maria Island, Florida, including Tampa Bay, from the Mississippi/Alabama border westward to the mouth of the Pearl River, and along parts of the Southeast coast from north of Jacksonville to near Charleston, South Carolina, including Savannah and Bruswick/St. Simons Island, Georgia.

This means tropical storm-force conditions are possible within 48 hours. Interests along the northeastern Gulf Coast in the path of Michael should be rushing preparations to completion. Follow the advice of local officials if you are ordered to evacuate, particularly if you live in a storm-surge-prone location.

- Landfall is most likely to occur somewhere between the Florida Panhandle and the Big Bend of Florida a few hours either side of midday Wednesday.

- Conditions will begin to deteriorate as early as Tuesday evening on the northeastern Gulf Coast.

- After landfall, Michael will then accelerate inland across the southeastern U.S. Wednesday night through Thursday night with gusty winds and heavy rain.

- Michael could enhance rainfall in the mid-Atlantic and southeastern New England Thursday night and Friday.

The NHC is forecasting Michael to be at least a Category 3 hurricane when it approaches the Florida Panhandle Wednesday.
- There remains some uncertainty in the intensity forecast, and Michael could be slightly weaker or stronger near landfall.
- Michael will still be a dangerous hurricane even if it does not intensify as much as currently forecast.

Wind
- Hurricane-force winds (74-plus mph) are expected to arrive in the hurricane warning area on the Florida Gulf coast Wednesday and are possible in the hurricane watch area on the northeastern Gulf Coast by that time.

- Tropical-storm-force winds (39-plus mph) are expected to arrive in the hurricane warning area on the Florida Gulf coast by Tuesday night or early Wednesday.

- Tropical-storm-force winds are most likely to arrive in the tropical storm warning area on the northeastern Gulf Coast by Tuesday night or early Wednesday and are possible in the tropical storm watch area by that time.

Re: Hurricane Michael

I’m in eastern Alabama and keeping a close eye on it. Luckily it’s looking like it’ll go east of us.

Re: Hurricane Michael

I was down in JAX/Kingsland for Florence and it missed us. Was supposed to fly back to JAX yesterday morning and the canceled that trip for fear of this one. If it follows the projected path, it will miss that area again but oh well. South Carolina seems likely to get a bunch more rain they didn't want.

Re: Hurricane Michael

I bet it’s going to be pretty wet...from the standpoint of water.

Hey now, let's not get ahead of ourselves... We should wait for the Presidential Alert and not jump to those sorts of conclusions.

Re: Hurricane Michael

I'm down in Bradenton today. Hit one squall line on the way to the facility today, but other than that not too bad. It's a bit breezy, but maybe 20mph. Nothing to write home about. Glad this sucker is staying away from my area.

Re: Hurricane Michael

While it's still a Cat 4, wind speed is only 6mph from being a Cat 5.

Re: Hurricane Michael

I wonder how that big pier in Pensacola will hold up.

Beautiful area. They had built up some new big hotels at the beach, those should hold up okay but there are still a lot of beach houses at risk.

Re: Hurricane Michael

Having CNN reporters (or any other reporters) just standing outside getting battered and drenched by 100 mph winds and rain is just retarded. It's also bloody hilarious.

Re: Hurricane Michael

They built some new high bridges for I-10. Hopefully those hold up too.

Florence had at least $38 billion in damages. Wonder if this will be worse.
