Hurricane Michael Becomes Major Category 3 Hurricane

Hurricane Michael has strengthened into a Category 3 hurricane, as a well defined eyewall is shown to the visible satellite imagery, and the storm dawdles around the Atlantic.

Michael is currently forecast to meander around its current location for a few days, before taking off northwest. As this meandering takes place, Michael is expected to slowly weaken with time. After Leslie shoots off to the northeast, it looks like Michael will follow in her path and also go north.

It appears the two storms will be intertwined together, trying to keep up with each other as they move off north. While Michael is the stronger storm, it appears the much-larger Leslie will be able to pull Michael into her grasps and carry the both of them off into the northern Atlantic.
