Re: Hurricane Ida Nearing Cancun, Bordering on Cat 2

Excellent discussion here this morning, thank you!

Did she move west or was she really relocated?

Think everything beyond the next 24 hours is guessing, educated or otherwise. Hard storm to forecast.

Also, energy in the western gulf of mexico may be throwing a fly into the ointment


I had spent so much time watching the digging high in the atlantic and what was upstream to the north and nw that i really didn't notice how consolidated the western gom had gotten and how if possible that area could reinforce some sort of sub tropical jet running energy out ahead of the front moving down.

November storms are ripe with possibilities...

Great image of her center off the tip of the Yucatan, thanks..
