Vacation??? Should not be until December 1st this year lol! I have a feeling we will hear from him shortly.....
Problem is that 2020 means no rest for the meteorologists. We'll be having these hybrid canes in December with cold rain and wintry mixes getting thrown into the mess at the rate this year's been going for us.

TD 28 going nowhere fast. Other boards thinking a center is more SE than what the NHC is seeing. I believe recon is heading out early morning. If indeed center is more SE, could very well be a much different track.
More support as to why there should be no 5 day cone. With social media enhancing communication, 3 day cone is plenty.

Just like with every other storm this year, we are in the formative stages so you can’t focus on Day 3-5 track point. The cone is good, center points not so much.
Interesting to note, 6Z models are catching on. For the first time the GFS actually shows a hurricane, the new HWRF/HMON coming out now. Both send this isn’t Yucatán while before they all were much farther east. See how these short term trends as the storm is reorganizing farther south make a huge difference.
