ralphfl, I ask you to provide some proof of your statement that the mets here love to go against NOAA. That, in fact, is not the case. Most of the time, our tracks are very much in line with what the hurricane center forecasts. For the entire life of Dennis, the mets. here were calling for a Florida landfall, something you didn't see from a lot of other forecasts -- except the NHC. And, when the NHC gets one right, we are the first ones to give credit where credit is due (perhaps you forgot Dennis already?)...and when they get it wrong, we are there tempering the lashing that they undoubtedly take. For an example of that, see Charley from last year.
Perhaps you have us confused with other organizations, such as the aforementioned (by you!) Joe Bastardi, who quite often is miles away from NOAA/NHC. Please do not make statements that cannot be justified, as it detracts from the job that people on here are trying to do -- and the conversation at large.
