Re: The NHC forecast is only good for 3 day, after 72 hrs a sharp short wave will pick IKE up

Ike's eye is just starting to emerge over the GOM and he's in pretty good shape for having just spent so much time bouncing off of Cuba. He is also moving faster than the NHC has predicted so far. He is going to be arriving at his next tracking point a couple of hours early. We will probably see a decent amount of strengthening by tonight at the 11pm EDT update and certainly by tomorrow morning. He seems to still be on track.
