Re: Hurricane Paloma Approaches Grand Cayman

Just an unbelievable event happening with the hurricane. May reach a cat 5 in November. With it being such a strong storm is there a possibility now that this wont dissipate to a remnant low which is the current forecast? could this still be at least a tropical storm once it crosses Cuba? The shear needs to attack this or there is going to be a problem once it gets past Cuba. From what I have seen this season from storms going through Cuba, I do not anticipate the landmass to break up the storm that much, so its entirely up to the shear. Lastly, in looking at the water vapor loop does not look as though the trough is really digging southward that fast. Is the thinking that this trough will still push south of FL and really inhibit the storm, or is that up for question still?
