Seems to me that NHC has had low confidence in forecast and track, both, thus some of the forecasters reluctance early on, plus these storms that run the length of Cuba are iffy, at best. They usually are much more robust if taking a south to north route. I am really wondering whether the system survives the Cuba axis. They have before, but were usually better developed before the crossing. This one doesn't have a lot of time to spin back up to much before making a very long and demanding landfall. As far as canes go, this one seems less impressive to me as time goes on. Had it survived Haiti I think I could have more confidence in it's long term health. But it is fairly small system and can spin up and down rapidly, so we'll see, but I remain skeptical.
