Great news: @JohnMoralesNBC6 essentially just sounded the all clear for landfall near Miami.
No matter the exact track, #Irma will be a heavy rainfall and inland flooding threat to the FL peninsula and the Southeast. Prepare now!
NHC 11am track Peak winds Sunday Miami-Dade & Broward 75-85 MPH Upper Keys 85-90 MPH Middle Keys up to 130 MPH Lower Keys Up to 170 MPH
There is a high probability of Tropical Storm Conditions throughout the entire Florida Peninsula.
Quick Saturday morning video update on Hurricane #Irma: https://www.tropicaltidbits.com/blog/2017/09/09/saturday-morning-irma-raking-cuba-dangerous-weather-already-impacting-south-florida/ …
193 miles S-SE of FLA , 130 mph now but > winds after passing Cuba , landfall first in lower FLA Keys - Tampa More likely than Miami ?
Irma hits N coast of Cuba hard , max winds have weakened to 130 mph , but strengthening expected after passing Cuba.
The Florida Keys, SW Florida, and Tampa will likely see the core of Hurricane #Irma. Time is up to the south, and you better be off the keys
The eye of #Irma has just re-emerged back over water.
Cuba has been raked by #Irma's eye all night. Recon data indicates Irma has weakened some as a result, but remains extremely dangerous.
The interaction between #Irma & Cuba is likely a factor in change of forecast track. Newest Cal. ECMWF EPs shows Cape Coral/Fort Myers hit
Replies to this tweet are heartbreaking. Keys are likely to get a direct hit & some don't have the means to leave.
Hurricane Jose track still a mystery - too far out for accurate forecast , but something to keep in mind...
