what would be some telling signs in the next 24-48 hours to indicate "more" definitively where Isaac may go or probably will not go... if hd could be a CAT3 it's not realistic to evacuate 3/4 of the gulf coast..... at some point the emergency planners will need the "windshield wipers" turned off
He is starting to look really good on visible as the sun sets. Core initialization is well under way as the CDO continues to improve.

Any thought that once this gets in the Gulf, considering its size, that this storm may act like Ike and go down to 950mb but but be a Cat 2, but have tremendous storm surge?
YES! My husband is in the oil industry. Ike was a "2000 year storm" (his quote) based on the damage it caused to the oil & gas infrastructure in the gulf. He said that to me last night with it going thru extremely hot water.

The guys on TWC just noted an interesting possibility. The trough thats currently in the eastern GOM & over florida is whats tugging Isaac northerly. That trough is expected to move into the south western/south central gulf area, He noted if the trough had an influence to tug Isaac more northerly towards Florida when it was in that position, Whose to say it won't tug it more westward into the central gulf once the trough moves into that position, making landfall more along the northern gulf coast, and he circled SELA/Mississippi gulf coast.

Good to see that SW and central LA are out of the woods. Praying for those in the path - we've all had our share.
