Hurricane Sally Track Moves Farther East As Storm Approaches Gulf Coast

“Hurricane Sally is tracking even farther east as the strengthening storm slowly inches closer to the Gulf Coast, according to the National Hurricane Center on Monday night.

Forecasters said the latest track shows Sally making landfall near Mobile Bay in Alabama on Tuesday night or Wednesday morning as a Category 2 hurricane, but NHC continued to express uncertainty in the storm's path even on Monday night.

‘There continues to be a significant amount of uncertainty on exactly where and when Sally turns northward and makes landfall, with model solutions ranging from a landfall on the Florida panhandle to a landfall in extreme southeastern Louisiana,' NHC said.”
