Bringing you the latest Hurricane Irma path updates, storm track, weather models, the latest forecasts, tracking maps and videos as the storm heads towards the Caribbean.

Hurricane Irma come after Hurricane Harvey hit Texas and Louisiana on the Gulf Coast, leading to the death of least 39 people and devastating floods in Houston.

The next hurricane is forecast to develop into a category 4 hurricane east of the Leeward Islands in the Caribbean next week. But there is uncertainty over where it will go next.

We will have the very latest Hurricane Irma news in one place, updated throughout the day and night until the storm has passed.

Here are live updates from the the NOAA, National Hurricane Center (NHC) and the National Weather Service (NWS) as well as the most advanced weather models from around the world.

9.30am CDT: The next NHC update will be at 11am EDT (10am CDT)

8am CDT: Any impact on USA cannot be ruled out at this stage

Julian Heming, who works on predicting tropical cyclones for the Met Office, said Irma is on track to approach the Leeward Islands by Tuesday or Wednesday.

Mr Heming said that the models are starting to shift a bit north, suggesting there is an increasing chance that Irma could bypass the islands in the Caribbean.

After Hurricane Irma passes or hits the Caribbean, there is an even greater deal of uncertainty over where Hurricane Irma will go next.

“At this stage, we can’t rule out any impact on the US. But if there are any it will be at least a week before it happens,” he said.

He added that it is still quite possible that Hurricane Irma could continue recurving right and go back out to sea. WILL IRMA HIT THE USA?
