Thank you all for your work and interpretations on the models. I've been following intently for the past few days and this forum has been a voice of reason in the vast misinformation being circulated around online.

I had a quick question that someone may be able to help. I've been logging coordinates of the storm for the past few days, waiting to see the change in direction to the North. In my logs, I notice how the storm has been heading "West" for the past 24 hours. However, the lines of Latitude has changed from 22.0N to 23.1 N in the same span. The most egregious was between the 8AM to 11AM advisory this morning. It went from 22.6N / 79.6W to 22.8N / 79.8W. A change of .2 degrees north and west. Wouldn't that indicate a NW movement? The NHC showed a West direction, but I'm not sure why.

Obviously I still trust the NHC over my basic geometry knowledge, but I was wondering if there was an explanation. Thanks again for everyone's help.
