"Every single model is in agreement and I don't say that very often," says CNN meteorologist Chad Myers.
Both the American and European models have the storm making landfall just east of Panama City and only miles apart from each other.
The models also indicate a major hurricane at landfall.
Mexico Beach is currently forecast to be on the east side of the storm and both models are predicting sustained winds over 120 mph.
The timing of the current models also aligns on a landfall Wednesday evening. A little bit later than the current National Hurricane Center forecast.
However, this is just one model run. It is always important to look at all of them. The next model runs will happen about midday today.
