Re: Ike Approaching Great Inagua, Hanna Extratropical

I just don't see Ike going more south than he is now.


Even going west he tangles with cuba and friction alone should slow him down at least 3 or 4mph and he is already slowing down as evidenced by the most recent advisory..

so... that being the case...

i don't see how he takes the bottom of the cone

he is bottom heavy now.. his moisture is to the south not the north except for one long far away band

note carefully the moisture that blew up in the BOC and is moving east and then gets shunted back in the flow to the west

showers from that moisture not ike are visible on long range key west radar

if ike slows... does the high begin to break down.. ???
