The latest update on Hurricane Michael shows the storm has weakened to a Category 3 storm with winds at 125 mph. The storm center is moving north northeast at 16 mph. The storm is expected to continue weakening slowly as it moves inland.
We will continue to see showers and storms flaring up, and they'll be widely scattered to scattered in nature. They will be pulse-like, and that means locally heavy rainfall and the potential for strong wind gusts as storms collapse.
