Tropical Storm Elsa Shifts Closer To Central Florida

If you’re headed to Walt Disney World early next week, you’ll want to take note as Elsa continues to head towards Central Florida. We previously shared Tropical Storm Elsa turned into Hurricane Elsa… the first hurricane of the year. With Florida on Elsa’s projected path, we were happy to see she downgraded back to a Tropical Storm. You’ll still want to keep close watch however as Elsa figures out where she is headed and how strong she will be when she makes landfall. And yes, we know all those Disney fans out there appreciate the National Hurricane Center naming the storm Elsa!

As reported by OrlandoSentinel: “Tropical Storm Elsa continues its approach to Florida on Sunday with a projected path that predicts landfall near Tampa late Tuesday or early Wednesday and then slicing across the peninsula from west to east. The 11 a.m. update from the National Hurricane Center places the center of the storm, which was downgraded from a hurricane on Saturday. By late Tuesday or early Wednesday, the storm is predicted to shift northeast making landfall somewhere near Tampa still with 60 mph sustained winds and then progress on a path that could take its center over Ocala on the way to Jacksonville.”

While we hope Tropical Storm Elsa doesn’t rain out your plans to visit Walt Disney World, keep watch as even the National Hurricane Center has noted this is a hard one to track. Stay safe, Disney fans!
