Scott makes some valid points -- the Gulf of Mexico is very dry. There are signs that the air in the eastern Gulf is becoming moister in the mid-levels, however, as the diffluent flow around that upper low to its west is starting to send moisture into the region.
And, what hasn't been discussed as much here -- yet is a very real concern -- is a threat further up the coastline, particularly to the Outer Banks. As the system moves north, it will start to become extratropical, exaggerating the west-east lopsided nature of the storm, but there could be some strong winds up the coast from Jacksonville to Norfolk into the middle of the week -- and, to a lesser degree, the Cape Cod area thereafter. Stay tuned.
