Tropical Storm Michael forms, forecast to become hurricane

Tropical Storm Michael forms, forecast to become hurricane

Right now, we do not have any active warnings or watched regarding this system, but that will likely change as Tropical Storm Michael moves closer to us and strengthens.

National Weather Service The recently upgraded tropical storm is forecast to become a hurricane before making landfall along Florida's Panhandle.

The storm center was located about 90 miles south of Cozumel, Mexico, or 225 miles southwest of the western tip of Cuba. Maximum sustained winds are now at 35 miles per hour.

So what can we expect in metro Atlanta and north Georgia?

.

"Nearly all of the intensity models bring the cyclone to hurricane strength over the Gulf of Mexico in 2 to 3 days", the 10 a.m. Sundayforecast discussion by the National Hurricane Center said.

Tropical Storm Warnings have been issued over the northeastern portion of Mexico's Yucatan Penninsula and the western portions of Cuba have been issued in advance of the storm.

The United States and China, Guajardo added, "are locked in an entirely different conflict, something that won't be short term". The new deal-the United States-Mexico-Canada-Agreement-replaces the Clinton-era NAFTA .

It is too soon to indicate the exact location and magnitude of these impacts.

There is, however, some disagreement on how quickly the storm will move over the Gulf, which would impact when it would make landfall and perhaps give it a chance of strengthening more before hitting Florida.

Once it reaches land, Michael is forecast to weaken into a tropical storm when it passes through the East Coast, including the NY metro area by Friday morning. It was expected to strengthen into Tropical Storm Michael on Sunday, and could become Hurricane Michael on Tuesday night or Wednesday. Two factors will be critical in clarifying the forecast over the next day or so.

Based on the current forecast track, Michael would provide rain to our area from late Wednesday until early Friday morning.

Tropical Storm Michael formed near the Yucatan Peninsula on Sunday, and it's on track to wallop the United States.

The Weather Channel has noted that forecast guidance is unanimous that Michael will trek north through the Gulf of Mexico and likely pose a threat to parts of the U.S. Gulf Coast by midweek.
