Hurricane Dean – A Scary New Direction?

leave a comment »

Dean is now a major hurricane, a category 3 with sustained winds of 125 mph.  As of Friday evening, the National Hurricane Center is maintaining their long term forecast and putting the Gulf Coast landfall around the border of Texas and Mexico.   They also forecast landfall over the Yucatan peninsula and a direct hit for Jamaica.

New computer model runs are cause for concern in the New Orleans area.  The GFDL, considered to be a reliable model, is forecasting a more northerly turn with landfall in Louisiana.  This is just one model among many, so it may certainly be wrong.  It has Dean beginning this turn over the weekend, so hopefully by Sunday we will know if it is correct or not.storm_04b.gif
