Re: Bill a Category Four Hurricane, Likely No Threat to US

Well said Doug. Often though people use that to believe it will do whatever it wants... giving it a sort of soul, in truth its dynamics and often the high just reinforces the current pattern but sometimes...over time... have seen some crazy things happen that were later attributed to it "making its own weather" and yet...all part of the overall stream of atmospheric conditions.

amazing, truly... to watch it all unfold.

and a slight variation in path over a part of a day can extrapolate into big distances over the longer term of the forecast
