As we're still watching and waiting to see where Tropical Storm Isaac will go, I thought I'd go ahead and summarize where we stand in terms of forecasts.
National Hurricane Center
This is the serious part of the diary, by the way. The NHC still has Isaac making a direct hit on the Florida Keys during the day on Sunday into early Monday Morning. They have the southern half of Florida under a Tropical Storm Watch meaning that tropical storm conditions (sustained winds of 45-73 MPH) are possible as Isaac moves by to the southwest. The Florida Keys look like they'll take the brunt of the storm as it passes through the state.
As it approaches the northern Gulf Coast, there remains much uncertainty in the forecast. Someone between New Orleans and Panama City will take a direct hit from what is forecast to become a hurricane, it's just a question of who. It'll keep flip flopping over the next few days, but a trend will (hopefully) become clearer as the days progress.
The models keep shifting the track back and forth as each run comes in (every 6 hours), but the main idea is that someone on the northern Gulf Coast is going to get hit with a formidable storm. The 00z (7PM CDT) runs have Mobile in the direct hit zone again, but it keeps shifting back and forth. As I said above, we'll have a clearer picture as we get closer to landfall early next week.
Isaac is forecast to take on the shape and appearance of the Antichrist (Barack HUSSEIN Obama) as it leaves Cuba and approaches the Jesus Convention in Tampa early next week. Fox News' own weather models show the liberal Democrat storm hitting the Jesus Convention in Tampa next week and then racing back to Washington DC to pass another fag-marrying Obamacare bill.
Even though it is against the current meteorological setup, AccuWeather's own Henry Margusity is absolutely convinced that Isaac will stop short, suddenly turn east, whip around Florida, and smack into South Carolina. They also think that we'll get an early season Big Daddy blizzard for the I-95 corridor, so it's best that you go raid the stores now.
The Weather Channel
The Weather Channel predicts that Isaac...oh, wait, I'll have more information tonight at 10 after these commercial breaks and this reality show that has abso-fucking-lutely nothing to do with the weather.
The 12 year old expert meteorologists of the Facebook world contend that Isaac will suddenly change course and hit whatever major coastal city they live in. They're hyping up all sorts of crazy impossible shit just to gather Facebook likes because they lead sad, pathetic, insecure lives.
