Nicondra Watching Tropical Wave In the Caribbean

Hurricane conditions are expected within the next 12 hours, according to the NHC. On the forecast track, the low or the tropical cyclone should move near the eastern coast of the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico tonight through Sunday night, and then move into the southern Gulf of Mexico on Monday.

Chris Holcomb and the 11Alive Storm Trackers team will have full coverage all week of Tropical Hurricane Michael and bring you full details on what sort of effects it will have on our weather in and across the state of Georgia. The storm is moving to the due north at 7 miles per hour.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami says Michael is packing top sustained winds of 60 mph (95 kph) and is about 105 miles (170 kilometers) east-southeast of Cozumel, Mexico.

"The current forecast indicates the storm entering the Gulf of Mexico by Monday morning, strengthening to a hurricane by early Wednesday and likely targeting the Florida panhandle by late Wednesday", CNN meteorologist Gene Norman said.

"This storm will be life-threatening and extremely risky", Scott said during a press conference.

Forecasters warned that the storm could produce up to a foot of rain in western Cuba, potentially triggering flash floods and mudslides in mountainous areas.

Michael is forecast to eventually make landfall as a hurricane Wednesday afternoon along the Florida panhandle. With this track, the Florida panhandle would get the highest impacts, including the Emerald Coast and Apalachicola, the Big Bend and up through the state capitol of Tallahassee.

The storm brewing in the Caribbean strengthened to become Tropical Storm Michael about noon on Sunday, and experts now expect it to develop into a hurricane that could impact the Carolinas.

The governor warned that storm surge could affect areas of Florida not in the storm's direct path. Tropical storm winds extended out 175 miles (280 kilometres) from the storm's centre.

NOAA's National Hurricane Center issued a Public Advisory at 11 a.m. Heavy rainfall should hit the western portions of Cuba as it moves north.

Gillum's campaign said the Democrat was planning to return to Tallahassee on Sunday to focus on preparing the city for the storm.
