Maria: ALL computer models (NOGAPS included) now have Maria making a turn back out into the Atlantic. 3 Current models stop short only showing the
initial turn while the other 3 models are showing a complete turn back out to sea. My guess is this storm will follow a similar path as Katia and
will not have an effect on the US mainland.
Nate: Is sitting off the coast of Mexico, but the strengthening that was projected simply did not happen. It seems that the storm is already beginning
to weaken and fall apart, which is really quite shocking considering conditions in the Gulf Of Mexico are very favorable. Current projections have
this storm making landfall as a Tropical Storm. 3 computer models show a Northern turn which could be good news for Texas and send some rain towards
the Southern parts of that State. 3 other models show a southern turn. So at this point it is anyone's guess what will happen, but all models agree
that this storm system will fall apart very quickly once making landfall.
Katia: For our friends across the pond, she is headed your way. All models suggest that Katia will continue to weaken down to a tropical storm before
brushing along or making landfall around Ireland and the U.K.
