Updated – 9/11/2016 – mammoth storm projected to threaten east coast…

Well, I am happy to report that the above mentioned scenario does not seem to be on the horizon.

However, Hermine will likely pass through northern Florida and sit off the east coast of the U.S. for about 5 days, according to the latest forecast model. This is good and bad news. Obviously, her presence prevented the above scenario from developing, but she may bring a good deal of trouble to the Mid Atlantic coast, not to mention Florida.

We shall see…

Here’s the forecast model that was referenced in the original post, but considering the last miss, I’m unsure how reliable it will be –
