A northward motion is expected through tonight, followed by a northeastward motion on Wednesday and Thursday.
By 8 p.m. Monday, Michael's top sustained winds had risen some to 85 miles per hour (140 kph) as it headed north at 12 miles per hour (19 kph). The storm was centred about 724 kilometres south of Apalachicola.
Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 35 miles (56km) from the core and tropical-storm-force winds out up to 175 miles (282km).

"This is a storm that is going to be life-threatening in several ways", said Bo Patterson, the mayor of Port St Joe, Florida, whose small beachfront town lies directly in the storm's projected path.

In the small Panhandle city of Apalachicola, Mayor Van Johnson Sr. said the 2,300 residents are frantically preparing for a major hurricane strike that could be unlike any there in decades. Many filled sandbags and boarded up homes. It is expected to become a hurricane by Tuesday.
The core of the storm was expected to crash ashore around midday Wednesday near Panama City Beach, along a lightly populated stretch of fishing villages and white-sand spring-break beaches.
In fact, the situation is already looking so dire for a midweek landfall on the Florida panhandle that Governor Rick Scott has preemptively declared states of emergency in numerous counties while suspending his own Senate campaign to warn residents of impending danger.
Hurricane-force winds extend about 45 miles from the center, with tropical storm-force winds reaching 185 miles, the NHC said. Some of that rain could be locally heavy.
"We are running out of time", Scott said in a post on Twitter.
After landfall Michael will track directly over central Georgia Wednesday night into Thursday morning.
Neighbours in Alabama - the entire state is under an emergency declaration - also were bracing.
Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey has declared a state of emergency ahead of Hurricane Michael's arrival. Forecasters also warned spinoff tornadoes would also be a threat.
