Re: Tropical Storm Isaac
said by KeysCapt:As with all things tropical, that prediction has now changed to a Cat 1 at landfall. All models still have it headed for Cajun country.
Yep, projected to be a Cat 2 and coming ashore at New Orleans.
The satellite imagery showed it well right of the projected track over night, and now it appears to be crossing the projected path headed towards the left side of the track (almost due West). While it's interesting to watch, it's not uncommon for tropical storms to not stick to the game plan. I try to point these variances out, since often it will be an update or two before the NHC, will commit to an actual change. Somewhat like my GPS which will try to have me driving on the road it wanted me to drive on even though I've taken an off ramp. Eventually the GPS will give up and admit I exited, but it takes a while before it give up on its projected path.
