Quote: That trough north of Katrina is going to turn the hurricane more to the N/NE but my question is when is this going to happend. It might happend sooner than expected that trough extend's real far south just passing texas right know so it all depends on the forward speed of the hurricane on how fast it moves. If the trough beats it then we have a different ball game that would cause a more treat to Florida than Louisiana.
I've always been of the understanding - based upon what I've heard from meterologists on TV - that you could tell which way a storm was going to turn (sometimes) by the elongation of the cloud pattern. If there is any truth to this and if it applies to Katrina (nothing much ELSE has seemed to apply) - Pensacola is in trouble.
