what would be some telling signs in the next 24-48 hours to indicate "more" definitively where Isaac may go or probably will not go... if hd could be a CAT3 it's not realistic to evacuate 3/4 of the gulf coast..... at some point the emergency planners will need the "windshield wipers" turned off
Any thought that once this gets in the Gulf, considering its size, that this storm may act like Ike and go down to 950mb but but be a Cat 2, but have tremendous storm surge?
YES! My husband is in the oil industry. Ike was a "2000 year storm" (his quote) based on the damage it caused to the oil & gas infrastructure in the gulf. He said that to me last night with it going thru extremely hot water.

The guys on TWC just noted an interesting possibility. The trough thats currently in the eastern GOM & over florida is whats tugging Isaac northerly. That trough is expected to move into the south western/south central gulf area, He noted if the trough had an influence to tug Isaac more northerly towards Florida when it was in that position, Whose to say it won't tug it more westward into the central gulf once the trough moves into that position, making landfall more along the northern gulf coast, and he circled SELA/Mississippi gulf coast.

Good to see that SW and central LA are out of the woods. Praying for those in the path - we've all had our share.

Not a professional forecast by any means and should not be viewed as such - just my opinion. Audrey'57, Carla'61 Hilda'64, Betsy'65, Edith'71, Carmen'74, Danny'85, Juan'85, Andrew'92, Iniki'92 (while on vacation in Kauai), Lili'02, Rita'05, Gustav'08, Ike'08, No-Name'16.
In the short term, I am a bit worry about south Florida, they better pray that Isaac stays a bit more inland in Cuba before heading towards the Keys.
How much lead time time do they plan for their evacuations? And do they evacuate for cat1/2s? (I know that isn't the forecast intensity)
Mayor of Key West says he isn't calling for evacuations for anyone including visitors at this time. He advised anyone with plans to head to Key west over the next few days, just monitor the weather.

coffeecups: Came home to Harvey from Slidell. Had a little rain here and there. There was no rain in Slidell when I left at 3:30pm. While in NO EAST, I saw where it looked like it was storming around Covington going towards Slidell. Wet but no rain when I got home

coffeecups: I will eat some strawberries on my cruise in early May---just a few of course, as long as I stay away from my better half.

SKYSUMMIT: Yea, had a good bit of strawberries. Did NOT go to the fest though.

coffeecups: ps I guess the memory of that snow is probably the only winter that I will get.

coffeecups: Somewhere around 1956 and 1958 it snowed so much that I thought I was in a blizzard. Of course I was only a child then, but the memory of that has NOT been met or surpassed.
