Irma restrengthened this evening as indicated below. However, it is now very close to Cuba and the last few satellite images indicate a slight weakening may be occurring.
The forecast track of Irma has been moved wet slightly, which puts Naples and the Tampa Bay area in greater jeopardy if Irma holds its strength.
If you live along the west coast of Florida, please follow the advice of local authorities with regard to evacuations.
Addition: 10:55pm. Updated model forecast is in line with the wind forecast below.
