Wilma: Step Forward then Move to the Right



From the NOAA website:

Wilma who is still strengthening, is expected to take a right turn and hit the west coast of Florida.

"...WILMA UNDERGOING RAPID INTENSIFICATION...A HURRICANE WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FOR THE PROVINCES OF MATANZAS WESTWARD THROUGH PINAR DEL RIO...AND FOR THE ISLE OF YOUTH. A HURRICANE WATCH ALSO REMAINS IN EFFECT FOR THE YUCATAN PENINSULA OF MEXICO FROM PUNTA ALLEN TO CABO CATOCHE. A HURRICANE WATCH MEANS THAT HURRICANE CONDITIONS ARE POSSIBLE WITHIN THE WATCH AREA...GENERALLY WITHIN 36 HOURS."

Winds speed has doubled in the last day to 100 miles per hour. This is a serious storm and those in path of Wilma should start taking precautions.

Wilma has already killed at least 10 people in Haiti from mudslides. By Friday she is supposed to be a Cat 4 on the Saffir-Simpson Scale. As "The Bard" would have said, "Once more unto the breach dear friends, once more"

Thanks for the comment Jeff, it would be great if you continued the coverage on this. I know you are our best weather tracker. And I would indeed look forward to your posts.
