Hurricane Ike 11 PM Update

Your Latest Florida Weather Information
Hi everybody. Ike has again shifted his course to the south and west. In fact, models are showing even more of a westerly trend and in all likely, the track will shift yet again . Ike may actually skirt the Island of Cuba just to the north before entering the Gulf. I hate to say it, but this may be a major storm in the Gulf of Mexico. If this trend continues, even the Keys may be spared the entire wrath of Ike. If you live in the Keys and you are told to evacuate, please do so for your own safety.

Ike continues to ride under a strong Bermuda high that is the steering force behind him. The shear that has been holding down the wind speed is soon going to abate. Once this happens, Ike will most likely intensify, possibly going into RTM (rapid intensification mode).

The models are in very good agreement on the future track of Ike. I still urge everyone in Florida, The Bahamas, Cuba and the Gulf to watch this very dangerous hurricane carefully.
Hurricane warnings have been issued for the SE Bahamas.
Ike remains a dangerous cat 3 hurricane at 115 mph.
