So IF Katrina were to take a straight line for the mouth of the MS River. 435 miles divided by 7mph=62 hours til landfall. That's still looking like Monday Noon. For the Eye to reach land! Wind and rain will precede the Eye by many hours
Do you think it's going to move on a straight line in that direction starting now? I think Monday evening/Tuesday morning is more likely but it could pick up speed - forward speed that is.
Edit:: latest water vapor shows some moisture forming well NW of Katrina but well east of the "feeder band" to Katrina's west. it's been sporadic but if it ever becomes consistent it might be a sign of the trough digging in to push Katrina northward?
