Hurricane Zeta is approaching landfall. Here's the latest information on Zeta. Peak impacts will begin around 7-8PM and continue overnight until 2-3AM (account for wiggle room in this forecast). Tropical storm warning for NW FL means T.S. force winds (39mph+) possible during that time frame. Gusts 50-60mph possible. We're also watching for 2-4' storm surge on the east side of the system at NW FL area beaches. A SLIGHT RISK (2/5) for severe weather is posted for our area this afternoon & tonight for tornadoes. A few are possible tonight too.
