Hurricane Sally is expected to be a dangerous hurricane when it makes landfall Wednesday morning.

The storm weakened overnight but it continues to move slowly toward the northern Gulf Coast.

Forecasters said the storm could bring “historic flooding with extreme life-threatening flash flooding” to portions of the Gulf Coast."

Hurricane hunters found that the storm’s maximum sustained winds decreased to 85 mph but the storm is expected to restrengthen.

We are also watching three other named storms in the Atlantic, Hurricane Paulette, Tropical Storm Teddy and Tropical Storm Vickey.

Right now the trio is not expected to impact Central Florida.
