Quote: well, you're thinking sort of right. the trough is deeper than thought and digging deeper.. when a trough digs somewhere whatever ridging is ahead will amplify some in response. the ridge over florida is overall weakening, but with the trough digging ahead of it, it should maintain for a while longer and turn the storm along its periphery. these influences are relative to the effect the storm is having on both of them... everything is really playing off of everything else. if that makes any sense... clark will probably pad what i have to say, 'cause his knowledge runs much deeper than mine. hope i don't correcting... that's always humbling.

Thanks for the explanation. I'm also thinking the orientation of the trough has something to do with the directional winds ahead of it. Whether its negatively tilted, neutral, or positively tilted would influence whether the storm moves NW, N, or NE, correct?
