Re: katrina on wv

Looks like a party is starting down in south Florida. Look at the convective bands from south of the Keys connecting to the bands near the center. I believe she will lose litttle intensity, if she keeps drifting SW, since the inflow from the SW is feeding the center nicely. I'm not sure i'd by any of the forecast tracks after 36 hours. Lots going on to the north and south of the center. If she hangs around long enough she may sit in the GOM off Naples and head NNE ahead of the trough. Steering currents will be weak in the GOM, as the ULL in the central GOM heads WSW..anything is fair game once its in the GOM..
