The 7am update on Hurricane Harvey from the Nat'l Hurricane Center:

posted by Kelly Bennett -

At 700 AM CDT  the eye of Hurricane Harvey was located

near latitude 26.3 North, longitude 95.8 West. Harvey is moving

toward the northwest near 10 mph, but its forward speed

is expected to decrease significantly during the next couple of

days.  On the forecast track, Harvey will make landfall on the

middle Texas coast tonight or early Saturday.  Harvey is then likely

to meander near or just inland of the middle Texas coast through the

weekend.

Maximum sustained winds are near 110 mph with higher

gusts.  Some strengthening is possible, and Harvey is expected to

become a major hurricane before it reaches the middle Texas coast.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 35 miles from

the center, and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 140

miles.

The minimum central pressure reported by the Air Force plane was 950

mb.
