Quote: Thunderbird thanks for your response. But this is more than just a JOG to the left woudnt you say? Would that eddy area be rotating clockwise like a little wheel out there and Rita reacted to it . Just a thought.
No she's still stairstepping along the ridge of high pressure.
EDIT -- It's an understandable assumption. When I first started doing this a couple of months ago I wondered if water temps could be a factor in steering hurricanes. They are not. Hurricanes are steered by the atmosphere, and by different levels of the atmosphere when they are at different intensities.
