Curious on how this storm will affect sea travel Sunday. Suppose to be leaving Martha's Vineyard Sunday evening back to the Cape. Will the storm be gone by Sunday morning for the New England coast or will it start to hit then?

If you're talking about this Labor Day weekend, then Irma is no problem for New England. It's a slow mover across the Atlantic so gives us plenty of time to watch so middle of next week it'll just be getting in/near the Caribbean. Looks like remnants of Harvey moving across the Central/Eastern US may bring you a few scattered shower chances though. If Irma were to effect New England region we're talking nearly 2 weeks out.

Follow this guy on Youtube, twitter & FB. He's the creator of the free model site Tropical TidBits. I havent seen this video yet but remember ones from the past and know they are worth it.

Just a reminder Irma is Wwaaayyyyyy out there. Tuesday or so of next week it'll just be approaching the eastern Caribbean so enjoy your Labor Day weekend plans! Looks like eye wall replacement cycle this evening so no real changes until tomorrow when it will likely resume steady strengthening (Stronger storms have to replace their eyewall/center every so often to keep it going / get stronger, sort of like changing batteries. Intensification is put on hold or even a slight weakening is normal during this several hours long cycle).

Looks like the new Euro model is trending more in line with the GFS. It still has Irma impacting the Leeward Islands but then curving NW and up towards the US coast line instead of staying south and heading into the Gulf like previous runs. The big difference looks like the GFS has it further north by day 9. Keep in mind that this is not cause to panic. These forecasts are for 8-10 days out and can change wildly between now and then.

So irresponsible! 24k shares! WTF. Beware of these kids on facebook!
