ELSA’S LATEST TRACK: Hurricane Elsa forecast to weaken just before landfall

MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) – Elsa continues to slide north paralleling the west coast of Florida. Elsa is now a hurricane, but weakening is forecast as it approaches the coast early Wednesday morning.

The main impacts from Elsa will be felt on the western half of the Florida Peninsula. Rainfall amounts around 4-8 inches are possible with coastal areas experiencing a storm surge of 3-6 feet. The highest surge amounts are expected in Tampa Bay and along Florida’s Big Bend.

Isolated tornadoes will also be a concern with the outer bands moving onshore.

For our part of the Gulf Coast, wave activity will increase. We will also note a high risk for rip currents. You will likely see red flags flying at the coast.
