11PM doesn't show much change, I thought we would see a more westerly track. Does show a tiny slow down. Big worry is a slow down over the warm gulf stream giving Matt plenty of fuel and time to ramp up. However the question of wind field size also has to be addressed. Tomorrow is going to be a long day of watching and waiting. Might do 1/2 the panels tomorrow, then the last 1/2 early Thursday AM. Not sure we will ever have a good enough handle on this storm to make the call on land fall in FL. A few more of the models have gone crazy at the end with a loop or bend back. However the guidance is very tightly clustered thru the Bahamas and then very close to central FL.
-------------------- South FL Native... experienced many tropical systems, but actually had to put up the panels for: David ('79) - Floyd ('87) - Andrew ('92) - Georges ('98) - Frances ('04) - Wilma ('05) - Matthew ('16) - Irma ('17)
