Re: HUR IRMA Lounge


It almost seems like NHC is waiting as long as possible on purpose before committing to where the northward turn will take Irma. In the meantime, they just keep leaving the last forcast day in the Straits. Even if they eventually decide it's an east coast scraper, they will just modify that last estimated position at the Keys to compensate. I could understand their reticence to committing to the turn. Once they do, the press will take it and run.

Exactly. And what better place to put the last forecast than directly on top of the Keys, to encourage them to get the heck out, starting now.
