The weather, currently.
The lovely pattern of weather continues! But not for long. Wednesday will be our last day of calm conditions and temperatures in the low 80s. By Thursday, we see a change with storms back in the forecast. I understand that not all people like warm and sunny conditions, so for those of you that like storms (like me), hold on, wet weather is coming back just for you!
Here's a quick look at your Wednesday forecast:
1) Still Sunny.
2) Still nice.
3) Still in the low 80s.
I hope you have enjoyed this weather! Get outside while you can! Your exercise/outdoor plan changes on Thursday.
What you need to know, currently.
Evacuations are underway in Florida as Hurricane Ian moves in. Hurricane Ian, which is now a Category 3 hurricane, is expected to grow to a Category 4 by Tuesday afternoon, before making landfall in Florida’s Gulf Coast on Wednesday. Thousands across the state are under mandatory evacuation orders.
Since leaving Cuba, the storm’s track has moved slightly east — dangerous Hurricane weather is still expected along the West coast. Threats include flooding, hurricane force winds, tornadoes, power outages and storm surges. Storm surges south of Tampa Bay in Sarasota are now expected to reach up to 12 feet.
According to Currently’s Hurricane expert, Glenn Schwartz, with the hurricane’s new path, there is a smaller chance of the storm weakening before landfall. This will cause the storm to make landfall faster than previously expected.
