Michael isn't the only named storm in the Atlantic

Tropical Storm Nadine was given a name at 11 a.m. ET this morning by the National Hurricane Center. It is located just off the West Coast of Africa.

Tropical Storm Leslie has been around for more than two weeks and has only moved about 200 miles from where it originally formed.

Michael is getting stronger

Hurricane Michael now has wind speeds of 110 mph according to the 11 a.m. ET advisory from the National Hurricane Center.

The storm is becoming better organized and is forecast to intensify this afternoon.

"Michael is expected to become a major hurricane later today and remain a dangerous major hurricane through landfall," the NHC stated.

There wasn't much shift with the track -- still a possible landfall near Panama City Beach, Florida.

What the models are saying about Hurricane Michael's forecast track

"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.
