Quote: Agree on the possibility of it not even making the Gulf. Many people seem overly worried about some huge increase in strength when it reaches the Gulf, but if it doesn't turn W or WNW it won't even make the Gulf. People along the east coast(even further north up on the east coast) need to be more worried right now. Let's see what happens at 5 p.m.
I agree. The east coast is where the immediate impact will be. The best case for us west coast residents is if the storm stays inland or takes a Frances like track north of TB, which is entirely possible. I just get a little concerned if the storm enters the GOM near Ft Meyers, tracks N-NW, then N. There would be plenty of warm water to go over to reintensify the storm, while hugging the coast. A worst case, probably unlikely, but has some model support now.
