I don't think Cuba has much of an effect.
I think it's clobberin' time for Florida.

Maybe. I can't find the overlay that shows it.

Maybe MysticPearl will provide the source. Or not.

From googling around, it seems people are using the vantusky graphics and making videos on YouTube as well.

It might have been a screenshot from a video

Yes fake.
The next Atlantic storm will be Lee is all we can confirm. No confirmation of a future hurricane

I have a cousin named Lee.

Also a childhood friend.

Coincidence, or just off topic?

It is losing strength because of Cuba. The 2am advisory was generous with 160mph winds in my opinion. Look for a downgrade at 5am. The pressure is rising and the storm is starting to look ragged.

Regardless, it is still a powerful storm, once it pulls away from Cuba it will have plenty of time over warm water to reorganize.

Cuba is not changing its track.
There is a nice stretch of warm water between Cuba and Florida.

Just saw a radar model with winds super imposed that seemingly shows Jose offset feeding Irma like a supercharger

What?
There is a very large separation between the storms. One is not feeding the other.

For sure, plenty of time.

The latest Euro computer model is out, it shows the eye going over Key West, then making landfall around Sanibel Island, riding up the coast bringing major winds to Tampa.

This is not a user friendly site, but it has good graphics forbthe various computer models:

I have a bias (yes, yes I do) toward GFS.
Which, by the way, seems to have been more accurate.

Current water temp at Key West 88.7°F.

This station will be one to watch as Irma approaches.

Criminy. Take a dip to cool off?

Not so much.

The Euro has been performing much better all season, and especially with Irma. The pros have noted the flaws with the GFS and the general consensus is it over estimated the short wave trough that is supposed to steer Irma north, that is why it has been east of the Euro.

The GFS also did not show a Cuba landfall, the Euro and Ukmet did.

This is discussed well on storm2k.

Well, landfall, sort of.
Didn't Euro show it well west of Florida early on?
