"This has been the most pathetic job of forecasting that I've seen from the NHC. I just can't believe how much they have changed their track in just 2 days. Mind moggling to me. They did a great job with Dennis."
I understand you are upset, everyone is. Just to be fair to the NHC, Dennis was a very easy one to predict. That was a pattern seen time and time again with no surprises. This one is harder. I think they mostly do a good job.
About the intensity - dont you guys feel, given Katrina, Charlie and just about everything else that enters the Breeding Ground (gulf), that Ernesto's intensity coming off Cuba is almost irrelevelant to anything other than the Keys?
Katrina was severly weakened, down to about tropical storm strength, and a scant day and 1/2 later was one of the largest and most powerful hurricanes ever.
Charley came limping off Cuba and yet still boiled to category 4 in like 200 miles over water, and it was moving quickly.
The way I see it, it matters little if it's a tropical storm coming off Cuba. Given the time it would have between say Tampa and the Keys, it could grow to immense (cat4+) intensity. What do you all think?
