I woke up too early this morning. Not sure why. My mind was working too much I suppose.
I headed over to Weather Underground’s coverage of Gustav to find out that he is now a Category 1 hurricane and his path has shifted to the south a bit.
Yup, he’s predicted to not be slowed down by Cuba and head right on out into the Gulf of Mexico as a major Cat 3 hurricane. According the the computer models and forecasts at this point, Florida may be okay from this storm although it’s still way too early.
But no doubt everyone in the Gulf states better pay attention to this one. He really can go anywhere and he gets into those warm open waters of the Gulf, he will get stronger.
