I think the answer to your question was posted on one of the other Irene threads. Mainly it seems to be that these two models have the high pressure ridge to the north as stronger than it may end up being. A stronger ridge to the north would keep the storm from turning as early and results in a more 'west side' model track. These SHOULD begin to shift east in later runs as the weakness in the ridge is taken into account.

If you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes...
