Re: Ike Approaching Great Inagua, Hanna Extratropical

Perhaps the models are thinking interaction with Cuba is going to literally rip Ike apart, and there won't be much left to get pulled up by a trough?
That could explain why they are all now forecasting the hurricane to miss the trough, although it's suspect until the interaction with Cuba actually occurs.
