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.

Weather Models

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.

Fox News

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.

Weather Weenies

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.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
