Re: Irene Forecast Lounge

I really think you cannot expect the same result from Irene that we had from Emily.

A lot of Ifs... if she is reforming more to the NW then it's obvious the models will pull to the right.

If she goes up and over the islands, that would be a serious problem as the water in the Turks and Caicos is very hot and would support rapid strengthening... if... she slows down she would strengthen more.

It's early in the game and a lot may change over the next 24 to 48 hours so hang tough and keep watching.

The cone covers all of South Florida right now... that's both coasts not just Miami.
