I'm sure it will make a liar of us all. And Stargazer is right, NG doesn't care.
In the meantime, still weak TS Don is finally geting its act together and it should go to Cat 1 Hurricane this eve or overnight. The track though looks to be leaning south, closer to Corpus Christi...and generally away from oil platforms.
In the meantime, we have another wave in the tropical Atlantic en-route. This one is better organized than Don ever was and it bears watching for late next week.
