Storm Shield Weather Forecast

Storm Shield Weather Forecast

Irma will continue to march through the eastern Caribbean as a Category 5 with wind sustained around 180 miles per hour.

Thursday evening is forecast as cloudy with a 30-per-cent chance of showers and a low of 10 C. Irma will likely drop to a Category 4 or 3 as it travels through more shallow warm waters by that time. Temperatures creep into the lower 70s.

"Most communities picked up 0.25-0.75", with a few locally higher amounts.

FRI/SAT/SUN: Lots of sunshine, with highs in the low 80s. That means highs only in the middle 70s there.

One thing to watch on Friday night will be the chance for frost as lows really cool off into the 30s in some areas.

WATCHING IRMA REMNANTS NEXT WEEK: Monday skies start sunny, then clouds increase. Max winds as of this writing are at 185 miles per hour.

Hurricane Irma will approach south Florida this weekend then turn north.

TROPICS: At the moment, the biggest concern for U.S. weather continues to be Hurricane Irma, which has maintained its category 5 intensity as it passed over the Leeward Islands and the British Virgin Islands. Katia is off the coast of Mexico, Jose is east of the Leeward Islands & Irma is just north of Hispaniola.

There are devastating reports coming out of places such as Barbuda and St. Martin. Irma will not have a direct impact on MS weather.

Showers will continue to swing through tonight before finally pushing east around daybreak.

The official track of the storm takes it up to Florida and parallel to the coast. HOWEVER, storm surge and flooding will still be a MAJOR issue for Georgia and the Carolinas.
