Follow the track of Hurricane Irma
There is still so much meteorologists cannot predict as it relates to Irma. How it could impact the Lowcountry of South Carolina is still up in the air, but we may start to see impacts from the storm as early as Sunday.
Regardless, we are closely monitoring the track of Hurricane Irma. You can follow along here- Hurricane Irma's Track
So much of what we can predict depends on the track of the system, which is still unclear at this time. The storm is still at Category 5 hurricane with 185 mph winds and gusts recorded at around 220 mph. It is moving over the northern Leeward Islands then will head toward the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.
There are mandatory evacuations in some areas of Florida, where impacts are looking very likely.
Behind Irma is Tropical Storm Jose, which is also expected to become a hurricane and poses no immediate threat to land.
It is still too far out to determine impacts here in the Lowcountry; however, impacts in Florida are looking very likely. Tropical Storm Jose is expected to become a hurricane, but poses no immediate threat to land. Tropical Storm Katia is in the Gulf of Mexico and should make landfall in eastern Mexico Saturday.
