Those tropical storm effects will extend inland across southern Georgia and into SC - the storm will pick up speed as it's carried at the tail end of a cold front. National Hurricane Center forecast revision.

The National Hurricane Center's forecast data has been updated to reflect a landfall maximum intensity of 105 knots, so around 120 miles per hour, hence the forecasters that said conditions are conducive for intensification appear to be being proved right, as the warm sea surface temperatures in the Gulf of Mexico and favourable wind shear conditions enable hurricane Michael to reach Category 2, 3 or even higher before landfall.

Michael is forecast to eventually make landfall as a hurricane Wednesday afternoon along the Florida panhandle.

A tropical storm watch means that tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch area, in this case within the next 36 hours. Hurricane force winds extend 45 miles outside the center, and tropical storm force winds extend outwards 175 miles.

A separate area of persistent very heavy rainfall is expected along the Pacific coast of Central America and Mexico, including western Nicaragua, El Salvador, Guatemala, and the state of Chiapas in Mexico.
