Models show it turning north an possibly hitting NY or cape cod. Way to early to worry but I am watching it. It could get pretty big.

Yeah been keeping an eye on it as well. Right now it is way to soon to be making any definite calls.

We should have a clearer picture late next week.

That one has me a little concerned as well. Its already a Cat 1 with lots of time to grow and with that projected jog south at the leeward Islands is concerning. When they come in low like that then turn north spells trouble for us.

The news this morning had the European model tracking southerly into PR and Cuba and then reforming in the Gulf potentially, this one bears watching very closely

Vast majority of the spaghetti models show it passing well to our East. I hope they're right

I hope so.. 3 houses and generators to worry about. That a shit load of hurricane panels and shutters. Not to mention all the boats, atvs and cars.

Irma is looking like a wicked one.

This went from a TS this morning to a Cat 2 at the snap of a finger. The way this is kicking south as it tracks westward is giving me a very uneasy feeling about this one for the east coast of Florida. Hope I'm wrong, but I've already hit up Lowe's after taking my hurricane inventory this morning and seeing what I needed. I'd rather have it and not need it.

Ever hear of hurricane Andrew?

This thing is going to get massive and very quickly, hopefully it just turns north and goes out to sea.

True, looks like some great surf is on the way. Swell models show an impressive long period swell arriving at east coast beaches starting on Tuesday and it could last for quite a few days which is rare.

Agreed Dave... If its a Cat 2 now it will easily be a Cat 4/5 by the time it gets here. I am going to close up early and leave if the models start looking like a hit. It will be mayhem here if it does.
