Way out in the Atlantic, a monster is growing. Isabel is a solid Category 3 storm and the NHC thinks it could develop into a Cat 4 during the night or tomorrow. She still has hundreds and hundreds of miles of warm ocean water to feed on.

Current projections aren't worth much at this stage, but they tend to point Isabel toward Cuba. She is moving WNW currently, but a more westerly track is expected.

I monitor several hurricane sites and there is apparently growing concern at the National Hurricane Center about this storm...and this is unusual given how far away it is from land at this point.

It's now a Cat4 with 135mph winds. I saw the predicted track for it, seems like it will continue westward through Sunday.


I doubt your friend will be having a cruise.

Hopefully it will do what Gabriel did and completely miss the eastern seaboard. Then again, Bermuda does NOT need another hurricane hitting its shores as they are still cleaning up from Gabriel, its worst storm in 50 years. Hurricanes can take very unpredictable paths, so we'll see what this one does.

As for Gabriel, we were studying it in my weather classes, and it was such a strong hurricane that while it has weakened, it will eventually become a gale sized storm that will probably affect England or even further. Now that is a strong storm!

Who is Gabriel??... I thought it was Fabian that hit Bermuda.

Isabel makes me very nervous. If it doesn't make the north turn when passing Puerto Rico it most likely will hit somewhere between Miami and Cape Hatteras. Most of my family lives in coastal NC which seems to be a hurricane magnet, so I'm keeping my fingers crossedshe turns out to sea.

Ex NWA,

Oops, my mistake. Gabriel was a tropical depression that hit Florida. It was indeed Fabian that hit Bermuda. I stand corrected.

The 5:00 PM EDT (9/10/03) discussion for this hurricane says that the only good news about this hurricane is that it is an intense hurricane and intense hurricanes usually weaken.

Hmmm... anyone got bad news?

I hate to say it Sleekjet, but that website does not look like an official NWS website. I'll look up an some official estimates of where the hurricane is forecast to travel. That wetdreammod is a real joke...

HURRICANE ISABEL DISCUSSION NUMBER 19
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
5 PM EDT WED SEP 10 2003

SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES ISABEL HAS STRENGTHENED THIS AFTERNOON
AS EYEWALL CLOUD TOPS HAVE COOLED TO -75C AND COLDER...WHILE THE EYE
HAS CLEARED OUT AND WARMED SIGNIFICANTLY. OBJECTIVE DVORAK
T-NUMBERS OVER THE PAST 2 HOURS AVERAGE OUT TO T6.5...OR 127 KT...
WITH A PEAK T-NUMBER OF 7.1...OR 143 KT...AT 1815Z. THE 3-HOUR ODT
AVERAGE IS T6.3...OR 122 KT. THESE INTENSITY ESTIMATES EASILY
JUSTIFY INCREASING THE INTENSITY TO 120 KT FOR THIS ADVISORY. IT IS
QUITE POSSIBLE THAT ISABEL IS A LITTLE STRONGER THAN THE ADVISORY
INTENSITY INDICATES...BUT WE PREFER TO USE THE 3-HOUR ODT VALUES TO
SMOOTH OUT ANY INTENSITY FLUCTUATIONS.

THE INITIAL MOTION ESTIMATE IS 275/10. THERE REMAINS NO SIGNIFICANT
CHANGE TO THE PREVIOUS FORECAST TRACKS OR REASONINGS. ISABEL HAS
DEFINITELY MADE THE TURN TOWARD THE WEST. UNFORTUNATELY...THE 12Z
GFS MODEL HAS RETURNED TO ITS OLD WAYS AND NOW MAKES A JOG BACK TO
THE WEST-SOUTHWEST ALONG 20N LATITUDE IN 36-48 HOURS. THIS APPEARS
TO BE DUE TO POOR INITIALIZATION OF ISABEL BY THE MODEL...AND THE
GFS MAINTAINS A PATHETIC LOOKING LOW- TO MID-LEVEL CIRCULATION...
CERTAINLY NOTHING REMOTELY RESEMBLING A MAJOR HURRICANE...THROUGH
72 HOURS. THE RESULT IS THAT WEAK MID-LEVEL RIDGING TO THE WEST OF
ISABEL FORCES THE CYCLONE WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD. THE CANADIAN MODEL
AND THE UKMET... TO A SLIGHTLY LESSER DEGREE...ALSO HAVE SIMILAR
LOOKING WEAK CIRCULATIONS...THROUGH THE SAME TIME PERIOD. ONLY THE
12Z NOGAPS MODEL INITIALIZES ISABEL AS A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL
CYCLONE. SINCE THE NOGAPS MODEL IS VERY CLOSE TO THE PREVIOUS
FORECAST TRACK...LITTLE CHANGE WAS MADE TO THE PREVIOUS TRACK
....WHICH IS A LITTLE SOUTH OF THE NHC MODEL CONSENSUS AND CLOSE TO
THE NOGAPS AND GFDL SOLUTIONS.

THE OUTFLOW ON THE WEST SIDE OF ISABEL CONTINUES TO EXPAND WESTWARD
AS IS GETS DRAWN INTO THE LARGE MID-/UPPER-LOW NORTH OF HISPANIOLA.
THE CYCLONE WILL CONTINUE TO MOVE OVER WARMER WATER AND REMAIN IN A
FAVORABLE UPPER-LEVEL OUTFLOW PATTERN...SO SOME ADDITIONAL SLIGHT
STRENGTHENING IS STILL POSSIBLE AT ANY TIME. HOWEVER...THE ONLY GOOD
NEWS ABOUT INTENSE HURRICANES IS THAT THEY GENERALLY DO NOT REMAIN
INTENSE FOR VERY LONG...SO SOME SLIGHT WEAKENING IS FORECAST.

Here's the latest Infrared (IR) imagery of the hurricane. Since its nightime, there are no available visible satellite images. The brighter whites indicate higher cloudtops, which indicate more intense storms. Isabel has a very clearly defined form, and you can see the eye and the clearly defined eye wall.

I caught two weather reports on TV in New Orleans this evening: one (Fox-8)was thinking it would be taking a track similar to Andrew, tracking across south Florida and into the Gulf of Mexico. The other (ABC-26) was thinking it start a curve towards the north paralleling just east of the Florida coastline. Both seem to think that next Tuesday will be a pivotal day so far as New Orleans goes.

Looks like the NOAA thinks it'll take a northward turn around the Bahamas.

Of course, I'll go along with Sleekjet: I wouldn't want to be in south Florida. Then again, if it looks like it'll affect MSY, we'll open MSY's EOC, and I'll be stationed at the airport for the duration.

Time will tell.

This storm is packing! As of 0300 Z (11 PM EST), the storm was packing winds of 145 mph with gusts topping out at 175 mph. Its moving West at a very slow 10 mph, and its pressure has dropped down to 938 mb, which is very low. If it continues to strengthen, we may see a category five hurricane. Lets hope not. Exciting for meteorologists, not for anybody else.

As of 5:00 PM EDT (9/11/03) Isabel is now a Category 5 hurricane. Predictions are for the strength to decrease to Cat. 4 within 24 hours. Isabel may affect the northern coasts of the Greater Antilles, but is far enough away that there will only be strong surf.

The National Hurricane Center forecasters are still telling people that there's no way to know how Isabel might affect the Eastern U.S. She is still too far away and moving too slowly to predict a track much beyond 72 hours (which would have her north of the Dominican Republic.)

I'm in Port Saint Lucie, Florida...a large town right across Lake Okeechobee on the seaboard. We are all concerned, but judging from past storms and an area of low pressure just off of the Bahamas, most of us think it will strike more north of Palm Beach and here should it hit FL.
