The latest forecast from the hurricane center put the storm track somewhere around the Lesser Antilles in the middle of next week.
Hurricane Irma is back to a risky Category 3 storm, but the spaghetti models continue to show a path off the coast of Sebastian and Vero Beach.
The storm reached powerful Category 3 status on the five-level Saffir-Simpson scale Thursday when its winds were clocked at 115 miles per hour.
Irma strengthened back into a major hurricane Sunday out on the Atlantic about 1,900 miles away from Boston.
The National Hurricane Center reminds all people along the USA coastline that we are nearing the peak of hurricane season.
The 11Alive StormTrackers are tracking yet another major hurricane.
According to the Weather Channel, direct impacts to the Lesser Antilles are more likely to be in the northern Leewards from Guadeloupe northward, but this could change in the coming days.
“From what we are seeing, Irma is not an immediate threat but it will be a strong potential threat by next week”, Mr Greene said. All locations along the East Coast of the United States should pay very close attention to this one.
By early Sunday, Irma was moving west at a speed of 15 miles per hour (24 km/h).
Hurricane and tropical storm watches were likely be issued for some of these islands later Sunday, the center stated.
Irma is the ninth named storm of the year, and comes a week after Harvey devastated Texas with record amounts of rain. The Atlantic season typically has 12 storms.
Though models predicting the hurricane’s path agree on the overall scenario, forecasters noted that the best-performing models still have about a 200-mile north-south spread on the fifth day.
