A 'very' sharp northward turn is predicted for Hurricane Katia after Thursday morning. Maximum sustained winds are now 100 mph as she continues to move NW at 12 mph.

Let's hope she makes a sharp turn to the east!

I've seen these right turns forecast before and they came true so just maybe once again it will happen.

They keep moving the far end of that 5-day cone further westward toward land. Now the cone is touching the Outer Banks of NC (Sun @ 5 PM Advisory). They were showing a turn northward at 5 AM on Thurday, but now they're not showing the northward turn until 5 PM on Thursday. That's 12 additional hours of westward movement...as indicated by the cone now touching NC.

Highcotton, have you also checked the map over at Stormpulse? I can't seem to get a link to post right now. If I'm looking at it correctly, it shows the western edge of the cone reaching Cape Hatteras NC again.
