The models already have included some of the G-IV mission data. In fact, this is the lowest Lat. mission ever flown. Please see: ZCZC MIATCDAT4 ALL TTAA00 KNHC DDHHMM HURRICANE IVAN DISCUSSION NUMBER 20 NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL 5 AM EDT TUE SEP 07 2004
A NOAA GULFSTREAM-IV JET PERFORMED A SURVEILLANCE FLIGHT AROUND THE PERIPHERY OF IVAN LATE YESTERDAY EVENING WHICH HAD A SIGNIFICANT IMPACT ON THE 00Z MODEL RUNS. MOST OF THE NHC MODEL GUIDANCE IS TIGHTLY CLUSTERED ABOUT A WEST-NORTHWESTWARD MOTION WITH A GRADUAL DECREASE IN FORWARD SPEED THROUGH 72 HOURS AS IVAN MOVES AROUND THE SOUTHWEST PERIPHERY OF THE STRONG SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE NORTH OF THE CARIBBEAN ISLANDS. HOWEVER...AFTER THAT THE MODELS BEGIN TO DIVERGE ENOUGH FOR ALREADY STORM WEARY PEOPLE IN FLORIDA TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT.
But even a close miss could bring more winds and rains than some area can handle. OrlandoNative
