Irma drops to Category 3 after trip over Cuba, will cross Keys overnight, turn North toward Tampa

A day spent grinding along the north coast of Cuba has slowed Hurricane Irma’s sustained wind speed to 120 mph, making it at least temporarily a Category 3 storm. At 11PM, the storm finally seems to be swinging to the northwest, the start of the long predicted turn that should take Irma up Florida’s Gulf Coast. As it crosses the gap between Cuba and Florida, the extremely warm water in the Straits of Florida could restore some of Irma’s previous speed, but it has lost some of it’s intense organization in the longer than expected trip over Cuba, and may not recover much, if any, of its earlier energy.
