As I’m sure that this will be a topic of discussion over the next week or so, I thought I’d start a thread. As a FL Gulf Coast resident, I track hurricanes pretty closely. Based on the Sat 10:00 PM update, it looks like virtually all of the models show it hooking to the East, missing FL completely (possible land fall somewhere up the Eastern seaboard - or going completely out to sea). The fact that the models have been consistently moving Eastward over the past few days (2 days ago it was a 50/50 shot it was coming into the Gulf), I’m feeling “cautiously relaxed”.
But one thing I’ve learned about hurricanes is that they can change course suddenly (up until about 12 hours before landfall, Katrina was supposed to hit between Mobile and Pensacola; it took a last-minute hook to the West, and we know what it did to NOLA). But as of right now, it doesn’t look like Orlando (or any of FL) is in the projected path.
