TS Katrina: Miami now, Pensacola next week?

Tropical Storm Katrina is in the vicinity of Nassau, Bahamas at this point, and is strengthening.

The National Hurricane Center expects Katrina to get to minimal hurricane status by the time it hits the Florida coast north of Miami late tomorrow.

The more difficult thing to fathom and predict is that Katrina is expected to cross the Florida peninsula and emerge into the Gulf of Mexico by late on Friday or early on Saturday.

Then it's expected to take a hard right and head for a second landfall around Monday. In or near the Pensacola/Panama City area. Yet again.

Current projections take Katrina inland as a hurricane, with it dropping more water in my lap by Monday or Tuesday.

It's gonna be a character builder, I can tell you that much.

Hurricane City (Real Player) is set to go live from Miami-Dade County, FL tonight at 8P ET. Other streaming coverage will be available from WFOR-TV/DT Miami and ABCNews Now.

Stay tuned.
