they are reporting it was up 125 on waetherunder grounds advisory
At 5 am EDT...0900z...the center of Hurricane Wilma was located near
latitude 25.5 north...longitude 82.4 west or about 55 miles
southwest of Naples Florida.
Wilma is moving toward the northeast near 20 mph and an increase in
forward speed is expected during the next 24 hours. On this track
the center will make landfall along the southwestern Florida coast
in a few hours and cross the southern Florida Peninsula later
today. However this is a large hurricane and strong winds will be
experienced well before the arrival of the center.
Data received from an Air Force hurricane hunter plane indicate that
the maximum sustained winds have increased to near 125 mph...with
higher gusts. Wilma is a strong category three hurricane on the
Saffir-Simpson scale. No significant change in strength is
expected before landfall. Some weakening is likely as Wilma
crosses the southern Florida Peninsula today.
