Re: 5 pm update out

Steve H.:

I had a different problem with the NHC's statement. The quotation is, "ERODES THE RIDGE A LITTLE TO THE NORTHWEST OF ISABEL ...." Now, does that mean: (1) erodes the ridge a little bit, in a position to the northwest of Isabel (i.e., "little" modifies the degree of erosion); or (2) erodes the ridge, in a position slightly to the northwest of Isabel (i.e., "little" modifies how far to the northwest)?

But frankly, I think any attempt to predict either exactly how much or exactly where the ridge will erode 5 days from now is like reading tea leaves, so I don't think that ambiguity means anything at this point...but it still left me wondering.
