Florence and West Caribbean
11:42 AM EDT - 13 September 2000
Today not much has changed. Florence is still a minimal hurricane spinning of the coast, and still is expected to move away from us eventually.
Hurricane Hunter aircraft failed to find a Low Level Circulation Center in the West Caribbean, but found a fairly impressive Mid-Level one. I expect it still to form within the next day or two. If it forms, things become interesting for the Gulf. Including Florida. However, until something really does develop, speculation of that sort is counter productive. Still, this system should be watched closely.
The system in the Central Atlantic still has a few days yet to develop or not.
