Good news based on its current path the worst of the landfall would occur over a reasonably unpopulated area between Panama City and Mexico beach/port St. Joe. A track further west could be pretty costly due to the development from Destin to PCB. Thankfully it shouldn’t linger too long so mass flooding shouldn’t be as big an issue as Florence.

It's not as populated but that part of the Florida coast in the Big Bend area is very vulnerable to storm surge.

This storm is large - 500 miles wide, give or take. I think we should expect some surge on the west coast of the peninsula, as well as some inland flooding in the peninsula if it sets up bands there as it makes its way north.

Wow the Euro is much faster. Puts a lot more of the FL Panhandle in play...

Faster = further North and West before the turn.

Yeah I was looking at the SLOSH earlier when I posted that, those are Opal-level impacts in an area that is probably even more vulnerable than the western panhandle, lower population aside.

On satellite Michael looks like he might be getting ready to really get going. I think the chance of some fairly rapid and significant intensification tonight is medium-high to high.

Also from the discussion......

Steady to rapid strengthening is forecast during the next
day or so, and Michael is expected to become a major hurricane by
Tuesday night.

Anyone have info of "when" Alabama EMA would issue Contra Flow for I-65 and for where landfall would have to be in order to do so? Does it require a State Of Emergency as well?
Thanks

According to the 4 A.M. advisory, the central pressure in Michael has risen a couple of millibars from 6 hours ago. Is this pressure rise temporary?

Most likely. It looks like it was fighting some dry air overnight, but in the last hour it looks to be getting better organized.
