Here is a link to the computer models that the weather folks use - animations.

 

Keep in mind that some of them are super scary, others are hard to see what there is. Also keep in mind that no single model is "right" and therefore, DO NOT USE ANY INFORMATION YOU GET FROM THEM TO MAKE LIFE OF DEATH DECISIONS!!!! I cannot stress that enough. Stay tuned to your local weather and emergency management authorities. Leave when they tell you to.

The CMC is known as the Doomsday Predictor. That is the Super Scary One, but, in case you have not noticed, there hasnt been a lot of CAT 5's so far, so take it with a grain of salt.

 

The GFDL is one of the more practical ones, along with the GFS and the HWRF.

 

Like I said above, these are just models. Visual representations of a computer's mathematical calculations of what it "thinks" the weather will be out to about 144 hours (5 days).

 

Thanks,

The GFDL has Gustav as a Cat 3 at landfall (Lake Charles LA):(

and GFS follows along with the GFDL and HWRF. :(Note that it also has Hanna stalling in the Bahamas before taking out Myrtle Beach.:eek:

That should keep everyone busy for a while....

Personally I'm a big fan of Storm2K. Great resources, and many pro meteorologists post in the forums (and they tell you a lot more than they do in their official broadcasts).

 

No worries. To each his own.

 

I followed Ike with great interest using this site last year and it was incredible. We did lose the downstairs on our west end beach house, but came through pretty darn lucky when compared to most.

 

I love all the options in the upper right corner.

 

When the Stuff was Hitting The Fan, this site was my go to source.
