Re: Irene Forecast Lounge


This is a repost because my other one disappeared. Can a hurricane get strong enough to make it's own steering currents and ignore what is out there trying to steer it?

Yes but only the extremely strong (Category 5) type storms normally can, but even then they are only in weak general steering conditions.
