I love watching Margaret Orr showing where every possible model might take this storm. A storm that initially wasn’t supposed to come anywhere close to us could possibly move west and affect us in some way. I don’t think this is anything to worry about but it does show that with all the computer modeling and predictions hurricane paths are still unpredictable. I remember as Katrina hit the gulf, it was supposed to hit well east of us. Those predictions soon changed and there was a bulls eye on New Orleans. We have a couple of more months of this, if the predictions of the number of storms that are supposed to form this year are accurate we will be seeing a lot more of the computer models and the cone of uncertainty.

    Ol’ Margaret gets a little too excited during hurricane season for me. I like Dan Milham’s more professional delivery.

    I’m still mad at Margaret from 1998, when I evacuated for Hurricane Georges because she started crying on the air. I’ll stick with Bob Breck, myself. He seems to get it right consistently.
