A tropical storm watch was issued for the lower Florida Keys Sunday as Tropical Storm Ian was set to rapidly strengthen, with a large stretch of the Gulf Coast of Florida preparing for a possible landfall later this week.

While South Florida was currently out of the cone of concern from Ian, there was growing thought that it could become as strong as a Category 4 hurricane before making an impact on the northern part of the state in the coming days.

Ian had maximum sustained winds of 50 mph as it moved west-northwest at 12 mph, the National Hurricane Center in Miami said Sunday. Ian was about 265 miles south-southeast of Grand Cayman and 540 miles southeast of the western tip of Cuba.

“In the span between Sunday night and early Tuesday morning Ian’s winds would increase by a whopping 55 miles per hour (mph)—from 65 mph to 120 mph—before reaching Cuba and entering the Gulf of Mexico”

The tropical storm watch was issued Sunday evening for the lower Florida Keys from Seven Mile Bridge southward to Key West, including the Dry Tortugas.

A hurricane warning was issued for Grand Cayman and the Cuban provinces of Isla de Juventud, Pinar del Rio, and Artemisa. A tropical storm warning was issued for for the Cuban provinces of La Habana, Mayabeque, and Matanzas.

A tropical storm watch was in effect for Little Cayman and Cayman Brac.

Despite Ian’s movement more to the west, South Florida could still be placed under a tropical storm watch in the coming days due to expected weather conditions from the system.

Limited flash flooding and urban flooding was possible with rainfall across the Florida Keys and the Florida peninsula through mid next week, NHC forecasters said.

On the forecast track, the center of Ian was expected to pass well southwest of Jamaica on Sunday, and pass near or west of the Cayman Islands early Monday. Ian will then move near or over western Cuba Monday night and early Tuesday and emerge over the southeastern Gulf of Mexico on Tuesday.

Ian is then expected to move on a path to the Gulf Coast of Florida, with the center staying to the west of the Florida Keys, according to the latest advisory.

There was increasing confidence that life-threatening storm surge and hurricane-force winds over portions of western Cuba could occur beginning late Monday. Up to 16 inches of rain could fall in parts of Cuba, according to the NHC.

Despite being out of the cone of concern, officials were encouraging South Florida residents to stay vigilant.

The City of Fort Lauderdale was distributing sandbags on Sunday. They will be limited to six per car and proof of residency will be required, according to Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue.

Distribution began at 8 a.m. at Mills Pond Park located at 2201 Northwest 9th Avenue while supplies last.

The City of Miami was also distributing free sandbags to Miami residents starting Sunday at 7 a.m. at multiple locations including Little Haiti Soccer Park (6301 Northeast 2nd Avenue), Grapeland Park (1550 Northwest 37 Avenue) and Douglas Park (2755 Southwest 37 Avenue).

11 AM ADVISORY | South Florida remains out of the cone of concern. What we will need to monitor is the chance for flooding, waterspouts, and tornadoes.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis activated the state’s National Guard on Sunday ahead of the storm’s expected impact later in the week.

The governor’s declaration frees up emergency protective funding to address potential damage from storm surge, flooding, dangerous winds and other weather conditions throughout the state.

DeSantis expanded the declaration of a state of emergency Saturday to include the entire state.

“It’s important to point out to folks that the path of this is still uncertain. The impacts will be broad throughout the state of Florida,” DeSantis said at a news conference Sunday. “So from the Tampa Bay area all the way up to Escambia County along Florida’s Gulf Coast you could potentially see it make landfall in any of those places as of right now.”

NBC 6's Ryan Nelson has more on how some residents are getting ready even though South Florida is not in the cone of concern.

President Joe Biden has postponed a trip to South Florida next week due to Tropical Storm Ian, the White House announced Saturday.

Biden approved an emergency declaration for the state of Florida Saturday due to Ian, the White House said in a statement.

The declaration authorizes the Department of Homeland Security and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), to coordinate all disaster relief efforts resulting from Ian.
