If you look at the new spaghetti plots, the storm is now making less of a 90-degree turn north. Which is bad for us, because it was previously going up the East coast of the state. Ughhhhh....

This is correct, and more models are shifting west slowly. Something about the ridge of high pressure up over the midwest? It seems just about everyone in FL has to be prepared at this point!

Default Hurricane Irma

Irma is predicted to go up the center of Florida. Still very bad news for Miami and areas east of the storm. As explained on CNN this morning the east side of the storm has increased wind speed and storm surges. For example, if the storm is moving at 20 miles an hour add those 20 miles to the wind speed of say 150 mph and you get a wind speed of 170 mph on the east side of the storm. On the west side of the storm you would subtract the 20 mph to get a wind speed of 130 mph. Doesn't sound like a lot but does make a difference. Still have to see where exactly it hits Florida. Those staying in the Keys are in definite jeopardy because the storm surge will place the islands under water. Pray for the best and stay safe.
