At 12:15 pm EDT it looks like Hurricane Ivan is finally on a NW track that will probably graze the western end of Cuba.

What do I think? No change here. I'm pretty sure that I'm the only Meteorologist that does not buy the westward track between New Orleans and Pensacola. I still predict a landfall between Apalachicola and Cedar Key. And if you read the 11:00 am EDT NHC/TPC forecast discussion on Ivan you can see that they realize a much further east landfall track is still possible.

Take Care,
