The local met here in orlando has said that Ivan will be a cat V until it landfalls Cooobah (cuba). Then down to a 4 and eventually a 3 near the fla panhandle if that track goes that way. My question is after it enters the Fla Straits near Key West, what prevents it from going back to a Cat V? Does it have anything to do with a Northward movement? I've told family and friends today not to worry that it will not be a cat V byt the time it gets to central Florida but I just realized I don't know the reasoning behind it. I'm just repeating what the Mets said and what I've seen forecast.
