Re: Katrina's Forecast Track Shifts West, Northern Gulf Needs to Watch


Well with the forecast models gradually coming into better agreement it certainly has more weight to the forecast. I dont think we will see a second landfall in Florida from Katrina. I do think we will see her landfall near or to the west of the current forecast track. I dont see any eastward shift likely.

Echoes my thoughts.

The forecast position puts it due S of Pascagoula 20 mi out, which normally would mean a MOB Bay hit with the typical NNE movement towards the last 30 mi N. However the reason for my concern is that the track could move more W, but not E...all it has to do is to move 15-20mi W and goodnight Jackson Cty.

However I need to take my own advice and chill. We like the roller coaster, right? I'll just stay on until Sunday night and we'll see how the cookie crumbles.
