Andy had it, "FWIW = for what it's worth" (something? anything?). The reason I threw that out there is under the premise that tropical systems love to head for the hot water and also in case anything was off the west coast of FL, there likely would be some high SST's for it to work with. I don't know that Erika will end up on that side of Florida or not. I can't tell. The wave axis is definitely heading west, but overall, the convection appears to be moving more WNW to NW. We do know that there will be strong high pressure in the SE in the 5-8 day period, so how this will impact #6 down the line is debatable. Could the ridge build overtop? Will the periphery guide the storm Westward at a point as per yesterday's UKMET runs? It's all up in the air. Super early target on US Coastal impact (if any) would be from about Daytona back around to Mobile. Those are my preliminary ideas for now, but anyone up the Atlantic coast or west across the Gulf Coast from those points should be monitoring the situation at least by Thursday.
