Quote: IF Charley becomes a 'major', he will start creating his own weather and may not respond to troughs and minor fronts. IHMO, all bets as to track are off IF he is cat III near or just north of Cuba. As much as I hope the TPC is dead on target, I also know that major storms don't always play by our 'rules', they make up the game as they wish. I would suspect being a major while south of the keys would perhaps favor an eastward track. Opinions anyone?
I posted this last September during Isabel:
I think the most interesting thought the past 12+ hours is the realization (recognition) that these monsters can actually "make their own weather". Isabel is NOT playing on any terms but her own. Although, NHC's prediction that the long hoped for northward/northeastward jog is seeming to happen...finally. All I can say is I hope NO ONE feels the true brunt of this (Isabel's) fury. I hate to say (predict?) this, but I think this name, Isabel, may not be recycled in the next six year cycle.
Are you my long lost brother?
