Re: Ernesto Strengthens, Targets Gulf

This morning many said on the infrared sat that it looked like Ern hit a wall...we saw the cloudtops have no westward motion. Then it seemed the center either jogged, reformed, or looped abit north. Now there seems to be nothing stopping the westward/nw motion, and it seems Ern is on the same heading as before, just a tad north...if it is a trend, we will know pretty fast...not an expert but my take...Ern should continue on the wnw track..shear seems to be lessening and the ull is booking to the west...after that..who knows..hopefully not an Elena...didn't it finally end up in Biloxi! that would make for a horrible labor day weekend.

PS

The models are all over the place.....everything in the Gulf is in play..can't wait for the next discussion!
