Quote: the eye is wobbling a tad around the overall force of the hurricane, the but general motion is still .2w, 1.0 north, or so....will probably track south of Jamaica.
In the extremely short time I've been here I've noticed that every time deepening occurs, that is when we see wobbles occur in the course, but that overall the course stays steady, so that as far as forecasting direction, it seems better to focus on the overall instead of every wobble.
I am wondering if the wobbles are due to deepening occuring in a non-symmetric manner; that is, more in one quadrant than another, and the wobble is a way to balance momentum and restore equilibrium? As if you were spinning and suddenly someone threw a weight into one hand, and you were off balance for a minute before pulling the weight into the center, but doing so made you move just a little.
