Re: Hanna Landfall at the SC/NC Border, Ike Going West Southwest Florida Threat Less Likely

Ok Dr Lyons could be right about a western florida event, but he just speculated and thats all anything is after 3 days out. First off the 6z run shifted east. We need consistant runs showing the same thing and with models converging on a specific area. Now with that said, models are good (especially the GFDL up to 72hrs), for up to 120hrs is a basic idea and can change( as told in the days 4,5 uncertainty cone). After 120hrs just dont even bother really unless you just want to see where it might go.(For Entertainment).

So by saying all this, just watch for consistancy and converging of the models up to 72hrs. Days 4,5 have a better chance of changing, and after that, dont take it for granted.!
