    My caution with putting too much trust in these early weather models is because while the models are excellent at predicting hurricane movement based on interaction with steering systems, they are less reliable when predicting how interaction with land influences the movement of these closed surface lows.

    And since this system is being steered into interaction with two mountainous landmasses before entering the hospitable environment of the Gulf, the models will be unable to predict the influence of those areas on the forecast tracks.
