Hurricane Michael could impact our area as a strong Tropical system later this week

The updated NHC forecast is near the upper-end of the guidance and calls for rapid
strengthening over the next 24 hours, and brings Michael to major hurricane status.
After intensification, perhaps due to a slight increase in southwesterly shear.
Weakening is expected after landfall, but the forecast track keeps a portion
of the circulation over water along the southeast U.S. coast, so Michael is
predicted to remain a tropical storm through 72 hours. The system should become
a powerful extratropical low off the U.S. Mid-Atlantic coast in about 4 days.
