Fox 13 Meteorologist Tony Sadiku is watching Tropical Storm Ian closely. As of Sunday morning, Tropical Storm Ian had top winds of 50 miles per hour and was moving west-northwest at 12 miles per hour.
Ian is expected to intensify rapidly and Sadiku says it could become a category 1 hurricane by late Sunday night or early Monday morning.
According to Sadiku, the entire west coast of Florida is fair game for a hurricane landfall next week.
He advises residents to get prepared now, so those plans can be implemented when there is a better idea of where the storm will hit.
