Michael quickly becomes storm, now hurricane and likely to target Florida’s Big Bend as a major

Written by on October 8, 2018 in Tropical, United States of America with 0 Comments

Back on Friday I posted on the CAG (Central American Gyre) and the potential for development. Yesterday we had Tropical Storm Michael, today’s it’s hurricane Michael and appears to be on it’s way to becoming a major tomorrow over the open Gulf of Mexico.


This system has organised and intensified quickly to the east of Cancun, Mexico. Fending off both dry air and shear to become stronger is never a good sign. When the shear and dry air clear tomorrow, Michael is likely going to a 4, perhaps even 4 if it explodes.


It’s been a messy few days along the Yucatan’s Caribbean coast.

The NHC has this targeting the northeast Gulf around Florida’s Big Bend, coming ashore as a major later Wednesday.
