Hurricane Ernesto - Florida on Notice
      Sun Aug 27 2006 05:39 AM

12:45 PM EDT Sunday Update
Several of our resident meteorologists have chimed in with their thoughts on Ernesto this early afternoon...

Rich B: at this post
HF: at this post
Clark: at this link or accessible below this main article here on the front page

More throughout the day as events warrant.

10:50 AM EDT Sunday Update
The forecast track remains much the same as earlier but further east, giving more risk to the Keys.

Again, it vital not to concentrate exactly on the point of landfall on the projection maps. Either way north or south is vulnerable to a hit. Use the cone rather than the points.

Hurricane or Tropical Storm watches may go up for the lower Florida keys later today.



Cuba has issued hurricane warnings for Guantanamo, Santiago de Cuba, Cgranma, Holguin, Las Tunas, and Camaguey provinces.

A warning also remains for southern Hati,

More to come....

Where do you thiink Ernesto will go? Let us know here


9:30 AM EDT Sunday Update

Hurricane Ernesto, a minimal hurricane has caused a large shift in intensity and track for the National Hurricane Center overnight, model trends kept on pusing east, and now forecast the storm to cross Cuba, and then enter the eastern Gulf of Mexico. The shortwave in the western US, may force the recurvature,putting us in Central Florida at most risk. It will be over cuba, but likely not long enough to significantly affect it





However, conditions seem to favor redevopment when it enters the Gulf. This means the entire west coast of Florida (still including the Panhandle, but mostly the peninsula) should be watching this system.

If it were to make landfall, it would be very late Wednesday through very early Friday, barring any suprises or slowdowns. Be aware that the hurricane center is forecasting a major hurricane in the Eastern Gulf. As the system is not over cuba yet, I would advise calm, right now, but if you haven't now would be a good time to get a few supplies if you have forgotton if you are along the west coast of Florida.

The angle of approach will likely be a very oblique one (somewhat like Hurricane Charley was two years ago), so it's very difficult to pinpoint an absolute landflal location now. Anywhere at and directly south of the center will feel the most issues of the storm.

504 AM EDT-Sunday
NHC has upgraded Tropical Storm Ernesto to a Category 1 Hurricane.
"Recent dropsonde and flight-level wind data from an Air Force Reconnaissance aircraft indicate that maximum sustained winds in Tropical Storm Ernesto have increased to 75 mph. This make Ernesto a Category 1 Hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale."

Forecaster Stewart issued the 5 AM Discussion on Ernesto and is quoted with... " Now for the really bad news...the Official Forecast track has been shifted significantly to the right or East of the previous track...Especially at 96 and 120 hours..."

"All of the global and regional models now agree on recurvature over the Eastern Gulf of Mexico around 96 hours...and take Ernesto Northeastward across the Central or Northern Florida Peninsula by 120 hours. The Official Track is similar to but a little West of the consensus Models."

Remember to check for updated Advisories and Bulletins from your local NWS Office and/ or the National Hurricane Center~danielw
