Well For now I am sticking to my forecast from yesterday. IF it begans to make the SHARP righhand turn then I will conceed to my forecast and go with the models. But for now Morgan City, LA to P'Cola, Fl maybe a little futher E. The reason for this is the High that is sitting over TX/LA is eroding. This will allow the WNW turn. I expect it to stay on this track until it get past the Isle of Youth. I expect then the trough i.e. Cold front that is now in Cal. to come down and start pulling it to the WNW then N. But it is a matter of timing. Hard to really say 4-5 days out. But I expect a high cat 3 before landfall and a high 2 or low 3 AT landfall. This is my prediction or forecast. but follow what the NHC and your local NWS say for the official information. This is for expermental purposes ONLY.

That is one heck of a forecasted turn. I will believe it when I see it.

I can draw only three comparisons off the top of my head to Wilma historically trackwise; intensitywise, I can't think of any that entered the GOM in later October as a category 4 (that's what the NHC is predicting, at least what CNN mentioned just now).

Check out the historic track of 1985's Kate, a memorable November landfalling storm in the U.S.:

Hurricane Floyd existed a week before in the month of October to what Wilma is now in 1987:
However with Floyd, some scientists and the like disagree that Floyd was actually a hurricane, and possibly a powerful non-tropical low.

The best comparison exists between Wilma and the 1999 Hurricane Irene, also forming in mid-October and brushing southern Florida:

our girls gettin her eye:


I bet this is another one of those psycho rapid intensification, i bet we will wake up to a 145 mph cat 4. It wont stay that strong before landfall, i dont think

Wilma pressure: 963mb ( I believe now) from the recon'.
I guess we are now back to the 'guess the lowest pressure' part of our Hurricane experience.
I'd say 935mb, with a cat'4 at some stage. It would not surprise me though if Cat'5 for 3-6hrs, but that does seem very much against the odds, although a few charts I've seen do have the 'possibility' of it occuring.
Calrissian: hmm

i'll take a stab at landfall and intensity tomorrow, but for now ima say 100 miles north or south of sarasota, as a weakening CAT III

I'll say 100miles E or W of P'Cola,Fl as a strong cat 3.

I sure hope you're wrong Alabamaboy. If it does come here I'll bet it weakens at landfall and won't do much more than Hurricane Dennis did.
