The biggest problem from a Monday landfall may be that a lot of people will spend the weekend having too much fun and not paying attention to the warnings. Then Monday rolls around and its too late.

"...anyone from texas to Tampa better watch Katrina" of the local mets there just flatout said nothing to worry about there...maybe some wind & rain...the track & cone...which iis off Tampa are set in stone as far as he's concerned...irresponsible if you ask me...especially with as much change & uncertainity we've had with Katrina.

Not only are you right but I have said the same thing myself several times the past 24 hours. Shame on me.

Actually that 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 50 mi N. However the reason for concern is that the track keeps moving W...all it has to do is to move 15 more mi 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.

Monday is going to leave it simmering in the GOM pretty long...lets hope she doesn't turn into a behemouth...

What other storms have crawled along at this pace in recent memory? Seems like a pretty bizarre one huh?
