Re: HUR IRMA Lounge


You do have a point with Wilma, but she was an oddity. Slow travel speed in a short run before turning

Yep, then Wilma got wacked by a very strong cold front. I've never experienced such a 12 hour weather difference in FL like that. She pretty much hit a wall, stalled, bounced off, then rocketed off to the NE. She had that pin hole eye and crazy low pressure, thus not a "typical" cane at all. Guess maybe she is a good comparison to Irma since this is by no means a typical storm either. Irma is already rewriting the record books.

11PM update is out, small adjustment to the east. The models are really well aligned even at the 4 day point. Normally the spread is much wider, confidence is increasing as the clock ticks down.
