Windy Wilma on its Way


Wilma is expected to hit the Yucatan Peninsula and just churn for several hours. Then the expected course is toward the West coast of Florida. Although now a category four, it still has punch. Predictions are that it will lose strength after it hits the Yucatan Peninsula, and will hit Florida in a weakened state.

From the NOAA website:


WILMA IS STILL MOVING TOWARD THE WEST-NORTHWEST NEAR 8 MPH...13KM/HR WITH SOME WOBBLES OF THE EYE DURING THE PAST FEW HOURS. A TURN TOWARD THE NORTHWEST IS EXPECTED LATER TODAY. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS HAVE DECREASED TO NEAR 150 MPH...240KM/HR...WITH HIGHER GUSTS. WILMA IS A CATEGORY FOUR HURRICANE ONTHE SAFFIR-SIMPSON SCALE. SOME RE-STRENGTHENING IS FORECAST DURINGTHE NEXT 24 HOURS.
