LOL...if my dad or me or my brother weren't married, we would be an exact copy of that
just another little detail from the 11pm EDT update from the National Hurricane Center
THE SHIPS MODEL CALLS FOR A PEAK INTENSITY OF 99
KT (114mph)...THE LGEM MODEL 94 KT (108mph)...THE GFDL 111 KT (127 mph)...AND THE HWRF 137 KT (157mph).
THE LATTER IS DEFINITELY NOT OUT OF THE QUESTION. THE INTENSITY
FORECAST IS INCREASED OVER THE PREVIOUS FORECAST IN BEST AGREEMENT
WITH THE GFDL. HOWEVER...IT WOULD BE NO SURPRISE IF RAPID
INTENSIFICATION OCCURRED AND GUSTAV BECAME A CATEGORY 4 OR 5
HURRICANE BY 72 HR.
They do predict some weakening before landfall of it does reach the Cat 4 or cat 5 level.
gotta like beer and cigarettes too...
