Is it me, or is the recent loop trending more ENE then NE? It's looking more like a Keys/tip of the state sort of thing on that line...

Come on cold front, come down and knock this thing into the Florida Strait!!

I have been seeing the same thing, and the models are trending south also. This is going to be a real pain, not like andrew, but still a real pain.

Right on bob... that will alow the circulation center to meander about 25 miles further north then thought earlier.

This is looking like a Cat'3 storm to me. The structure is looking more and more better defined. All the loops are showing strong activity to the north and this is leading to ever more clarity within the core.

Wilma...Cat'4 ? Hmm. I just hold in my mind the thought that rarely do storms proceed exactly as expected, too many variables, and I suspect there will be 'something' yet to surprise us.

Damn, this is exciting stuff. However, please know that I, along with many other British viewers/readers are wishing all those in the 'cone' a safe Monday.
