Hurricane Florida storm could become a major hurricane, crossing portions of Cuba and then turning northward into Florida by midweek.

Ian is forecast to move near or over western Cuba and approach the west coast of the Florida peninsula at or near major hurricane strength early next week, where there is increasing confidence in multiple life-threatening hazards: storm surge, hurricane-force winds and rainfall flooding,” the National Hurricane Center said in its forecast update about the storm.

While computer models disagree on the track and precise intensity forecast beyond Monday, this storm poses a significant threat to Florida

On average, hurricane track forecasts for days four and five have errors of about 150 and 200 miles, respectively, the Hurricane Center noted Saturday morning.
