The models for 99 seem to be spreading out more rather than tightening. The computer models range from one with a sharp westward turn across Cuba and two with paths that take it west to the gulf so it never hits Florida to one that has it hit the Florida east coast up about Melbourne, on both sides of but none hitting South Florida. Then the ensemble models have a mid path that comes up the west coast of FL but have various models ranging from Cuba to missing everything until Louisiana to staying off the east coast and never hitting the US. The wind speed has dropped from 45 mph to 40 mph as it's north of the Dominican Republic and Haiti. It turned west overnight.

An interesting piece of trivia. Florida has been almost 11 years since a hurricane made landfall in the state. (Wilma 10/25/05). Louisiana and NC have each had 4 since then.
