It definitely looks as though Frances is back on a W/NW course, and it wasn't just a "wobble".
Question: Steve Lyons mentioned something today at 5 or 6 about dry sinking air coming in which might inhibit the strength of Frances. It was about where the subtropical high/ridge is. I just looked at the WV loop, and to my somewhat trained eye, it looks as though that dry slot is not as dry as it was and he was hoping it would be. It looks like it's filling back in again.
Does anyone else see what I see? Could this be the cause of the eye changing? Or is it just recycling (again)?
And yes...I heard SL say that Miami would be out of the clear in 2 hours about 4 hours ago. I don't know why he said that...maybe he was thinking this NW track would last longer than it actually did.
