Uh oh, it's a wrap.

As Hurricane Dorian continues to make its way toward the southeast United States, Floridians may have just come across the worst possible omen Thursday: Jim Cantore may be heading to the Sunshine State.

According to a report from the Miami Herald, the Weather Channel meteorologist will be reporting on scene Friday but the exact location in Florida has not yet been revealed.

If you're familiar with Internet memes and viral YouTube videos, the running joke is that anywhere Cantore goes, there is a natural disaster heading his way. The meteorologist has made a name for himself after covering numerous hurricanes, including Matthew and Irma, from the scene.

The Weather Channel once poked fun at their star meteorologist with a hilarious commercial of beach-goers panicking at the sight of Cantore enjoying the day off.

All jokes aside, the possible impact of Hurricane Dorian is nothing to laugh at. The Hurricane Center said Dorian could make landfall in Florida as a Category 4 storm.

Gov. Ron DeSantis issued a state of emergency for the entire state of Florida ahead of Hurricane Dorian.
