New run of the GFS model ....... Big hit for the coast on this run... by 2 storms!

Even though its waaay long range...Its been consistantly showing it now which worries me.

Interesting. That first one is strange in that it hits FL, goes up the coast, comes back down, hits the Gulf and builds power. That would be VERY odd were it to happen.

When I lived in FL, we used to make jokes about the "cone of death" that the local news channels always talked about. I think the problem with the media is that they overhype every little thing...find the ONE swaying palm tree and stand a reporter in front of it, find the ONE low parking lot that now has an inch of flood water and stand in it, talking about the non existent devastation.

Point? People become complacent and don't believe any forecast anymore until it's bearing down, right on top of them.

WERE this model to be accurate, it would do some damage to FL. Which, no one wants that but FL actually really does need a hurricane right about now. (Environmental wise, that is.)

The second storm, again if this were to be accurate, looks to be a little more powerful than that first one before that first one hits the Gulf. It could prove to be interesting.

This GFS doesn't show them missing. Is this one different somehow?

Looking out 48 hours the two lows look like they get their act together. We might be dealing with double trouble here pretty soon...

Thanks for the link.

Just to give an update.. latest models backed off the idea of hitting the NorthEast.... Instead it shoots North more hitting Maine and Eastern Canada.

The recurve is looking like last year.

If the westerly winds decrease a little that could be trouble for East coast.

Yah, in that first video they most certainly did look like hurricanes with the first one not looking all that powerful until it comes back and hits the Gulf and the second one looking like a monster.

But how reassuring with the new update that it could affect Maine, over the east coast.

Beautiful. I just moved from FL and this thing might hit Maine? Seriously, get away from me hurricanes!
