I would have thought that warmer GOM waters would be reason enough for Ivan to strengthen; still, watch for that dreaded cone tomorrow! It's not the time to lower your guard SE Florida!

Dr. Steve just said that NHC has it as a Cat5 before making landfall in Cuba. While he was pointing out Cuba, by the way, he was pointing towards the middle, he was pointing and actually using his hands to show how the storm would cross ---right through the smallest part of Cuba....as in, directly south of the Keys...ala Charley. The amazing thing is that he doesn't seem to be biting the "weakening" all that much, and he usually doesn't deviate from what the NHC says. He also looks extremely alarmed, and from watching him for like 60 years now , he normally doesn't get too animated. That, in itself is alarming.

SSTs for GOM [Re: rmbjoe1954]
      #24536 - Thu Sep 09 2004 05:03 PM

notice the slightly cooler waters in the NE GOM...probably effect of Frances ....

BOC is pretty hot though..

Anyone know if (or when) Stacy Stewart will be doing the discussion?




SS should be on for the 10PM CT advisory, I'll check with my friend at NWS and see if she listened to the NHC conference call.

I cant see that kind of weakening [Re: Colleen A.]
      #24545 - Thu Sep 09 2004 05:12 PM

First of all, If I could press a button and turn this into a tropical wave, Im sure that I, and everyone else would do that.

That said, I can not honestly see this thing weakening that much over the GOM. If a trough is digging down, maybe, maybe, its possible to shear it, but I cant see that happening alot. And I think the thing about it weakinging alot over Cuba is unlikely, unless it stalls or passes over a wide part of it.

Does anyone know the water temp in the florida straits or a link to the bouys?
