Nicondra: Tropical Storm In the Gulf of Mexico Likely

The storm packed maximum sustained winds of 60 miles per hour (95 km/ph) at 2 a.m. eastern time, as it moved north on a path between Cozumel in southeastern Mexico and the western tip of Cuba, the Miami-based hurricane center said. Hurricane force winds extend 45 miles outside the center, and tropical storm force winds extend outwards 175 miles. Currently, Leslie is located about 680 miles northeast of Bermuda, with 60 mph sustained winds, and moving east at 12 mph.

Landfall is imminent on the Florida Panhandle coast Wednesday afternoon.

Michael could be as strong as a category 3 storm at that time. Heavy rainfall should hit the western portions of Cuba as it moves north. "As of Tuesday, around 1" of rain looks likely across most of the metro area. It is forecast to strengthen into a hurricane by Monday night or Tuesday as its center moves over the Yucatan Channel, crosses the Gulf of Mexico and nears the Florida Panhandle coast sometime Wednesday.
