The good news since my last post is that Irma turned north (as it is supposed to do!) and Rascal--in Curaçao--is well out of harm's way. The bad news? Looking more and more like Miami will take a direct hit from a Category 4 or 5 hurricane (after pummeling the BVI's, USVI's, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, and Cuba, among other islands.) All the 'spaghetti' models like this one below (showing probable courses) end up averaging a direct hit on Miami that will continue north through the heart of Florida. Could change for the better tomorrow. Hope against hope that all the computer modeling by tomorrow will follow that lonesome orange track (the one most easterly) out to sea!
