Hurricane Central

Tropical Storm Elsa sure is taking her time. As of the 8am update, Elsa is moving NNW at 12 mph. She’s currently ruining what could have been a beautiful day of fishing in the Keys as she heads up north. Likely landfall is just north of Tampa as a Tropical Storm or a low-end category one. Most of the models have it as a TS, but Elsa regaining hurricane strength is possible.

We’ll be dealing with some wind and rain today. There’s always a chance of this thing spinning off a tornado so don’t get complacent. If you live in a low lying area, storm surge is a real possibility.

Here’s some more on that:
