Tuesday Update on Gustav

Hurricane Gustav made its first landfall today on the peninsula of Haiti. Now the storm is interacting with Hispaniola, some weakening may occur. As for the track, the computer models have come into much better agreement today. The general idea is that Gustav turns westward late tonight and through the day tomorrow. By Friday, a bend to the northwest begins and the storm passes near the western tip of Cuba. From there, over Labor Day weekend, it heads into the very warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. After that, well it is still any ones guess. Basically, the entire Gulf coast needs to stay on top of this storm, including the Texas coast. I will have more updates through the week and if you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment below.
