Well, it looks like she will be a named storm just in time to go through the islands. The models are showing a split up the east coast and into the GOM. Funny thing is that with all the models, none of them actually hit Florida, they split it in 2 on either side. That means watch out!! One thing the models don't take into account is how the storm plays jumping over the islands, especially with Hispaniola and Cuba. These islands can really affect how the storm goes, either up the east coast or into the gulf. Hitting these islands can also slow it down quickly and change its track, so don't assume it is just going to buzz along at 23 mph straight into the gulf. It can change track drastically with a bump and run on these islands. Going to be another GREAT week on this site. I'll be worn out by August.
-------------------- Another typical August:
Hurricane activity is increasing and the Red Sox are choking.
