The Weather Channel's Jim Cantore is usually on the scene when there's a big storm—so, as Florida prepares for Hurricane Michael, one sheriff's office is letting the meteorologist know he's not welcome. The Santa Rosa County Sheriff's Office posted a "Trespass Warning" for Cantore on Facebook Monday as a joke, writing, "Everyone know whats in store when Jim Cantore shows up. So we issued a little notice." The fake warning says Cantore is welcome to make "non-business related visits only," preferably during the winter months, and it notes at the bottom: "We like Jim, just not under these conditions." Hurricane Michael is expected to make landfall Wednesday between the Florida Panhandle and the Big Bend, reports. It could be a Category 3 storm when it does, notes the Pensacola News Journal.
