I am astonished this morning!!!!!!!While I felt this storm could very well become a Cat 5, I did not in my wildest dreams think it could happen in 6 hours! This is very bad. If it has an IRC soon an can regain strength before Cuba's latitude then it will not have enough time to weaken to less than Cat 4 with the expected acceleration NE. I still feel confident landfall will be JUST North of us, not down in the Everglades as the storm still has a good westerly component to it and with it's growing size will not just make a hard right turn like the NHC track indicates but more of an arc which will explain my further North landfall projection.
