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


115 held for 48 hours? That looks dangerous

Why does the NHC do this....keep it as a Cat 4 but hint at the two models pointing to a 5? Instead of erring on the conservative side for loss of life, just come out and predict a Cat 5 to get everyone and their brother out of LA/MS/AL. If it hits as a 3 or 4 then everyone's happy anyway.
