I believe Fay was very near or just at hurricane strength when she crossed Cuba. Currently she has a fairly decent satellite appearence and I do not think it will take as long for her to being intensifying. Now don't get me wrong I'm not forecasting a monster. But a 90-100 mph hurricane is not out of the question. Shear immediately to the west of Fay has dropped to 5kts. As she moves north it will begin to increase some, so I expect modest strengthening.

Our t.v. stations are suggesting that the path is more east than what the NHC is showing. Can anyone else see a more north-easterly turn

It appears to me that the eye is currently right in the middle of the NHC forecast cone. The KW Storm Relative Velocity Radar Loop shows the center pretty clearly, as does the Reflectivity loop.

Whether it continues in that direction is anyone's guess.

I think a west central coastal and 40 miles inland florida affect is dropping greatly. This looks like a naples event.

"I used the term "relocate" because if a position at 2 a.m. is at 81.1 and then at 5 a.m. is 80.9, it cannot be "moving" north-northwestward as the second one is farther east than the first. It was not meant to be sarcastic, but to state the truth as per the positions given. Either the storm had to be relocated, or it is moving east of north but not moving north-northwest with the relocation. "

I am using the above quote from another site since it sums up completely that a relocation happened. Just because the NHC doesn't say 'relocate' or 'jump' does not mean it didn't happen. I will agree to disagree on the details. Its been a very healthy discussion (and I will soon be paying the price for being up till 3am waiting for the advisory...cant say we are not dedicated)
