At this point, it will be the second hurricane to make landfall in the USA this year.

"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. Leslie continues as a tropical storm over the Central Atlantic, but is forecast to briefly become a hurricane again.

Michael was about 485 miles south of Panama City, Fla. and 450 miles south of Apalachicola, Fla., the NHC said in a 10 p.m. advisory Monday.

The Hurricane Center's forecast calls for Michael to become a hurricane later Monday and make landfall Wednesday with 100 miles per hour winds, which would make it a Category 2 on the Saffir-Simpson wind scale. It maintains a north movement of 12 miles per hour. Those tropical storm effects will extend inland across southern Georgia and into SC - the storm will pick up speed as it's carried at the tail end of a cold front. A storm surge of up to 12 feet is forecast for a large section of the Florida coast.

Hurricane and Storm Surge Watches have been issued for parts of the Florida Gulf Coast, please monitor the National Hurricane Center and your local National Weather Service office for details as it relates to the protection of life and property.

Chatham Emergency Management Agency has entered OPCON 4 and is monitoring Tropical Storm Michael.

Then, wind shear will become weaker and Michael will become stronger. "The uncertainties we have at this time has to do with the storm being newly developed overnight", Barry said. Tuesday and Wednesday's forecasts will be highly dependent on the track. A precise point is challenging to make, but this does not minimize the ongoing threat in our local region regarding heavy rain, gusty winds exceeding tropical storm force, significant coastal storm surge throughout the Big Bend shores, and possible brief but quick-moving and quick-forming tornadoes. But within a few hours it gained more strength and by Sunday evening, it had top sustained winds of 60 mph (95 kph). Tropical storm to hurricane force winds are less than four days away from the United States.

A Hurricane Watch has been issued from the Alabama-Florida border eastward to the Suwannee River.

Landfall is imminent on the Florida Panhandle coast Wednesday afternoon.

Now is the time to prepare in the case of heavy rain and severe storms. The declaration will free up resources for storm preparation.
