Remember my post “Tropics Topics” from August 15 when I wrote about KATC TV 3 meteorologist Rob Perillo’s long-range model showing a major hurricane roaring up the Gulf sometime during the last week of August to strike the heart of the Louisiana coast?

Well, today’s the last day of August, and Gustav’s running a day or two late, but it looks like he’s on the way. The track below takes the center right over my rooftop on Hill Street in Eunice around 10:00 tomorrow night (Rob just said that on TV as I write. Hooray!)

Nice job, Rob.

However, so much for the plus or minus 1500 mile possibility of error Rob noted two weeks ago.
