I just posted a private message to Hugo on that exact topic. I've seen some pretty vague news releases for about the last 24-36 hours from NHC. It's like a tarot card reader...they say things like "i see money in your immediate future"...when payday is on Thursday. To say "some weakening is expected" with less than 36 hours left before landfall...if i'm hedging on possibly getting the hell out of dodge and someone says "some weakening is expected", I might just stay.
To say, "some weakening is expected" when Rita is passing over what looks like a pretty significant potentially hurricane strengthening eddy is somewhat irresponsible in my opinion.
