From Orlando Sentinel.com 9/4/17: Hurricane Irma forecast to be in Florida on Friday
Hurricane Irma is working its way through the Caribbean today and could reach Florida by Friday, forecasters say.
Meteorologists expect the Category 3 hurricane, with maximum sustained winds of 120 mph, to remain a “dangerous major hurricane” through the week and to arrive in South Florida by Friday morning.
Modeling by the National Hurricane Center shows the outer bands of the slow-moving, potentially dangerous storm lashing Key West and Miami by 8 a.m.
Did she slow down? She's not expected till Sunday, now, right?
The latest I have heard is that she likely will hit Miami on Sunday morning and go up the length of Florida for about 24 hours. Our forecasters think that we will get the worst of the storm around 3am Monday. Of course things could change.
