Ike Changes His Mind.......

Hurricane Ike continues to spin in the Atlantic near the Bahamas this morning as a strong category four storm. Ike is expected to make landfall as a strong category 4 storm with top winds near 145 mph along the Cuban coast Monday morning. Latest long range computer models do not bring as strong of a trough as we were forecasting last week across the Plains States and this could be some bad news. Ike is now expected to move across most of the Gulf and could make landfall anywhere from Houston to Panama City. I still look for Ike to turn north and miss the Texas Coast but, we will have to watch Ike closely because last Thursday it looked very likely that he would turn north and maybe miss the US East Coast. Stay Tuned……………………….
