Quick Intro: Longtime Lurker, and Serious WxJunkie (I must have been born during a Tornado watch, because I've been watching ever since). Thanks to everyone who provides this board with real technical knowledge, as well as the reminders that this is as much an art as a science.
That said-- Tampa media ran their nifty "VIPIR"- and I know it's probably not designed for hurricane prediction, but I couldn't help but notice something. The VIPIR has Wilma's eye landfall slightly north of NHC official track (not Naples like NHC, somewhere around Ft Myers), HOWEVER, the big rain event appeared to be in the north-northeast quadrant of Wilma, along the I-4 corridor from Tampa, up through Orlando, even with Wilma moving thru at speed. I assume this has to be because of interaction between Wilma and the cold front? Anybody know if there are other models or forecasters who support this? The weathercaster really didn't seem to make any big deal of it, but it sure looked like there was a possibility of some localized flooding.
