The CMC model brings Big Daddy into the Caribbean then turns it North, then in the long range has the ridge building back and the storm moving into the Gulf as a strengthening major with a pressure of 966mb (28.52). Both the Euro and the Canadian both bring a powerful hurricane toward the Gulf. We must keep our eyes on this one.

WOW...wasn't expecting that! Well, she has been maintaining some convection. The GFS doesn't do much with her and the GFDL kills her off pretty quick, but here are the rest of the models. Look familiar?

By the look of the models it appears now that 95 L will become the East coast threat and 94 L the Caribbean threat. I also notice the models have shifted further South since yesterday. I wonder if this is still going to be the Beast that the Euro had shown south of Cuba tracking toward the Yucatan Channel.
