Hurricane Ivan regained category 5 strength this afternoon and its path is taking it toward the Cayman Islands and eventually western Cuba. It's supposed to encounter shear before it nears the US, but it looks like it will remain a major hurricane throughout the period.
After Cuba is what most folks in the US are interested in, and this time the risk for the northeastern gulf is increased and the threat to central Florida decreased. Although the track error that far out still could be large. It would be Tuesday night or Wednesday for landfall on the current schedule and a lot could happen in the gulf.
The forecast that far out is still very uncertain so folks along the gulf will want to watch, especially the eastern half of the Gulf. Watch the trends.
** SITE NOTE ** Although we are working on improving the site hardware and bandwidth (thanks to donations and help from others), we are still using the old system currently, with slight modifications. Therefore the site may go down from time to time, although not for very long. We are continually working on improving the response without removing usefulness. We have new hardware on order and should be in sometime next week.
