There's been a new twist. The European models were showing it not crossing deep onto land but turning up the coast and now the forecast has been modified with the storm making initial land contact around Fort Pierce, but heading north and following the coast indefinitely. In some models it goes all the way up the coast as far as Canada. The current path shows a CAT 2 as it reaches the Jacksonville area. Slowing down and loss of steering currents have led to this change. However, the forecast advises we "should be prepared for additional adjustments to the left or right depending on future model trends." A hurricane warning has been issued for parts of the Bahamas. Winds are now forecast at 140 mph as it passes just north of Marsh Harbour. Still 140 mph as it hits in the Fort Pierce area and 100 mph when it reaches northern Florida.
