LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Hurricane Michael 2012 tracking revealed the system is now a category 3 hurricane today. Hurricane Michael 2012 project path still remains in dispute as the system moves across the mid Atlantic region, heading northward. But officials tell news that Michael poses no threat to land today, nor later this week.
For days, TS Michael seemed to have difficulty forming into a hurricane system. But overnight, Michael got upgraded, not from TS to Cat 1, but from TS to a now a Category 3 hurricane. Michael today is now the first Category 3 hurricane in the Atlantic this hurricane season.
Despite his upgrade today, Hurricane Michael 3 still poses no threat to land. Michael, however, is moving faster than other systems making news this summer.
Michael is now producing winds upwards of fifteen miles per hour. His tropical storm force winds are now in excess of seventy miles per hour. But Michael is moving Thursday at seven miles per hour, faster than recent Atlantic hurricanes this season.
Michael’s path, however, remains in question. Hurricane Michael is shifting northward and northeast, officials tell news. But in a news briefing this morning, the National Hurricane Center in Miami advised residents that Michael won’t increase further today but could exhibit “some gradual weakening possibly by Friday.”
