Irma Continues Tearing Through Florida

The center of Irma continues to move northward through Florida. What is left of the eye is well inland and is headed for somewhere between Tampa Bay and Orlando. While the hurricane is weakening it is doing so very slowly. The circulation remains well defined on the satellite loop and strong wind gusts continue. Naples had a wind gust of 142 mph and Marco Island which saw the eye pass over it had a wind gust of 130. Gusts over 120 mph occurred over the Keys when it passed over them this morning.

The Miami radar shows decreasing activity now that the center of Irma is well northwest of them. Some spiral bands continue to play through but they are weaker then what occurred earlier. Winds are still strong and gusty but they will begin to slowly diminish over the next day or so.

What is left of the core of Irma is very distinct on the Tampa Bay radar this evening between Sarasota and Sebring. Inland wind gusts to hurricane force will continue overnight. Hurricane force gusts will also continue on both coasts until the center begins a northwest hook on Monday and heads into Georgia. Tropical Storm Warnings are up all through the state of Georgia which is a very rare occurance.
