Hurricane courses are hard to predict. The latest track shows that it may NOT go west but move back to the EAST, towards Florida’s coast, yet still in the HOT Gulf waters…which are in the 90’s and that hot water is JET FUEL to hurricanes.
It is possible ISAAC could reach CAT 2 wind speeds if it does stay in the warm Gulf before moving back over the U.S. mainland in 3-4 days. Here is the Storm Central analysis.
In the next day or two we should know with more certainly WHERE ISAAC is going. Stay tuned.
