11:17 pm

hit for puerto rico and not the same for northern leeward islands as you know and these are all of the hurricane warnings that you see in the red here and that does include turks and cacaos and hurricanes for the bahamas as well. latest track keeps it offer the islands for most part. cuba looks spared a direct h hit. then it gets to florida straits and this water is incredibly warm and sometime saturday night late to sunday we'll see southeast florida possibly having a direct hit on this path. again we minder the cone very wide maybe we still get play out of this. and maybe the worst of it could stay out of that area. that would be fantastic. sunday at 8:00 still travel ago long the coast into the water. previously and then we're back watching it approach the charleston area at category two. that would be monday at 8:00. i would think by then we're starting to see clouds from irma as we get into monday 8:00. a tight clus
11:19 pm
operational models and this is a part of what this is being based on that track taking it again into the south carolina area and after that incredible high resolution satellite imannualy we've been seeing 8 a5 miles north, northwest of san juan and passes by dominican republic and again turks and caoas and it didn't hit much land in puerto rico today but boy the eye 15 miles wide if you notice it changing shape a little bit. we think what is happening is eye wall replacement cycle is ongoing. it may weaken and then emerge stronger since there won't be much disruption to circulation and entering warmer waters and favorable wind conditions. we have irma and hurricane jose behind it as well. updates on both of thousand and hurricane hunters continue to make passes through the core
11:20 pm
the eye wall sustained winds 185 miles an hour which is why this is strongest hurricane we've seen in this part of atlantic because it maintained that strength for so long about 35 hours now and central pressure of 916 also draw dropping as well. as it heads to these warmer waters that are 5 degrees if not warmer it could continue to stay as four or five. and i mentioned track for j jose. category one moving north, northwest 17 miles an hour and it will slightly grays the northern lee ward island and on weaker side gets category three thursday nighting to friday and then down to two and eventually weakening i'm hoping this is effect of irma churning up waters to tropical storm monday 8:00. we'll continue to watch that as well. as irma heads in the warm direction the southeastern united states and carolinas not off the hook. these could be areas impacted if
11:21 pm
florida peb ins la not off the hook and pan handle not off the hook and new orleans and texas can start to feel more comfortable this will not be heading their direction. looking at tomorrow in the weekends big area of high pressure finds a home over the north eastern u.s. and that's going to keep comfortable temperatures in here. cool mornings and a very nice air mass indeed with more sunshine tomorrow. we get back into the low 70s and quick look at weekend forecast. we'll forecast temperature of 73 on saturday with lots of sunshine and sunday sunny and cool. 72 degrees and your "fox5" accuweather 7-day forecast, what? no 0s? we don't have 90s on this? it's all low 70s? it's pretty much 50s at night until we get to late night week or into wednesday time frame. if we have impacts from irma here probably tuesday, wednesday. >> tuesday, wednesday here. >> i can mention something on your 7 day. >> yes. >> sunday redskins home opener fedex home field. >>
