Hope everyone is ready, because here it comes...Hurricane Joaquin strengthened to a Category 2 storm Wednesday evening, with maximum sustained winds of 105 mph.
The National Hurricane Center said it has adjusted its forecast to note that Joaquin's latest track is a threat to the Mid-Atlantic states and the Carolinas Sunday into Monday.
Wednesday evening's track has the hurricane making landfall between Virginia and North Carolina, and possibly headed up the Chesapeake Bay. The storm is expected to strengthen into a "major hurricane" in the next 48 hours. The National Weather Service said hurricane watches may go up along the Mid-Atlantic as soon as Thursday evening.
