Irma 5am update 9/5/17

Irma, currently a Category 4 hurricane, will pass near or over the Leeward Islands Tuesday night into Wednesday, and may undergo further intensification.

“The hurricane remains in a very favorable environment for further intensification, including low vertical wind shear, deep moist unstable air and warm water,” Dan Kottlowski said.

The current track of Irma will put Antigua and Barbuda, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, Anguilla and the U.S. and British Virgin Islands, in the brunt of the storm's rain and wind during this time. Impacts could also be felt across the far northern Windward Islands as well.
