Fluctuations/Shifts Expected with Irma Today

Sep 7, 2017

The National Hurricane Center says some minor fluctuations in intensity are likely today with Hurricane Irma, but it is still likely to be a Major Hurricane when it approaches Florida this weekend.

Perspective is important here. Irma is stronger and larger than Hurricane Andrew was when it hit South Florida in 1992. And the average error in the forecast track this far out is still wider than the width of the peninsula. This is why it is critical all Floridians, especially south of I-4 finish those hurricane plans today, and be ready to act on them when authorities say go.
