Wanted to post a quick note before the main discussion and video that Zach will be posting early this evening.

The afternoon model runs are suggesting a larger and more significant threat of dangerous storm surge and overall hurricane conditions for Southwest Florida.

Notice this image from the European model valid Sunday at 8 AM Eastern time.

We need to watch this very closely as it could be quite too far greater impact for the West Coast of Florida and people need to prepare and evacuate accordingly.

Again, meteorologist Zack Fradella  Will have a detailed video discussion posted early this evening. I will post a discussion near midnight tonight.
