Michael grows into Category 1 hurricane south of Gulf states

Nicondra Tropical Storm In the Gulf of Mexico Likely

Significant impacts are expected near landfall along the Florida Panhandle to the Big Bend.

A hurricane watch is in effect along the Alabama-Florida border down to the Suwanee River.

Here's the latest on Tropical Storm Michael, which is expected to strengthen into a hurricane and strike Florida. It's too early for a definitive forecast, but now it appears the system will continue to move north into the Gulf through the day Sunday and come close to the Louisiana and Mississippi Gulf Coast before shifting east with an approaching cold front.

Weather.com meteorologist Christopher Dolce warned the "hurricane conditions are possible in the region by Wednesday" with "damaging winds, risky storm surge, and heavy rain".

The storm will move further inland later in the week and bring its effects to Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia.

A tropical storm is likely to develop in the northwestern Caribbean in coming days and could bring storm surge and heavy rainfall to the U.S. Gulf Coast by midweek, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said on Saturday.

Many of these areas seeing the downpour of rain could also see life-threatening flash floods, the hurricane center said. Right now we are right on the edge of the track, meaning we'll have to watch it.

Michael, moving toward the US Gulf Coast, is now a Category 1 hurricane, the National Hurricane Center said.

A northward to north-northwestward motion at a slightly faster forward speed is expected through Tuesday night, followed by a northeastward motion on Wednesday and Thursday.

They also believe that Michael will produce four to eight inches of rain in Western Cuba, with maximum amounts of 12 inches.

National Weather Service The recently upgraded tropical storm is forecast to become a hurricane before making landfall along Florida's Panhandle.

Cuba issued a Hurricane Warning for the province of Pinar del Rio.

The Florida panhandle will be hardest hit, with parts of the Tallahassee and Panama City areas getting 12 inches of rainfall along with damaging winds.

NWS Charleston's latest advisory on Michael anticipates impacts along the SC coast as early as Sunday night, and minor to moderate impacts along the SC and Georgia coasts Monday until Thursday.
