She also has a similar track to Sandy so I understand Shore Skeptic's concern.
Florence was projected yesterday morning to be in Bermuda bu Sunday,now Tuesday and she has been downgraded.Still keeping an eye on her down here in Carolina.
This has been the strangest hurricane season I have ever seen.While we have had wetter than usual summer,none of it has been tropical. Meanwhile, we have storms heading for New England and Hawaii  Scratchinghead


I wouldn't be surprised if one of these storms at a minimum brushes Cape Hatteras.  The Cape sticks out there a long way and seems to be a hurricane magnet.

Yeah If all it does is brush,I'm not too worried as long as it hurries. We've had too much moisture already.

I remember posting on whatever forum I frequented at the time that having to deal with the terrorist attacks on our nation and a hurricane at the same time was almost too much.

The replies were "what hurricane?"

No storm following that path has made shore in the United States. Having said that, two others with a similar path have.

It's possible it hits NC/Maryland/Jersey. Hot water in that area means it's at least a strong Cat 3 at landfall.

According to the Weather Channel:
The latest GFS (US) model has it tracking up the Jersey shore before curving NE, crossing Long Island and slamming into southern New England. New York and Boston are in the crosshairs
The European model has it hitting the Outer Banks north of Hatteras and tracking up eastern VA to DC.

Wind shear is weakening it now. That's bad. The weaker it gets, the less likely it is to curve north before it gets close. The hurricane guys on the weather channel are getting excited. Even if drops down to a tropical storm in the next couple of days, It's going to reintensify when it crosses over the hot water of the Gulf Stream. Some computer runs show it hitting the east coast as a 5.

This sounds more like what I was seeing a few days back. Guessers had it plowing straight into South Carolina.

Oh Hell. I really don't feel like evacuating.

On the plus side, I just moved into a new apartment and everything is organized.
