Re: Area of Interest - Richard

NRL has upgraded their site to reflect 'Richard' so it looks like NHC is indeed going to name the system this morning. A little surprising since the recon only found maximum flight level winds of 30 knots. I'd also anticipate a more northerly adjustment to the long range track. Note that the GFS depicts a significant upper level pattern change in the GOM in about 4 days. If that pattern change verifies, the wind shear in the Gulf will decrease considerably as the speeds decrease and the direction becomes more southwesterly.
