OK, what you have to remember is the NHC only use the models to assist them in forecasting the track and intensity of the storm. They do not rely on them completely, or any monkey could do the job of the NHC. Another thing, I saw some critics of Mr. Stewart this morning for dramatically changing the track. Forecasts track changes are not unilateral decisions, but based upon input from many meterologists, models and other inputs. The NHC, for an organization completely underfunded by our government, is filled with dedicated employees who do a great job. Its because of them, that many lives are saved each year. So before we criticize the NHC, just keep in mind, they are the experts.
