It appears I may be undertaking my first Hurricane chase this upcoming weekend in Florida. Irma appears to make landfall as a strong annular hurricane. Right now models are showing a south Florida landfall, but they have been all over the place so I am placing very little stock in that.
I have booked flights (refundable/changeable) to Orlando on Friday evening, returning on Monday evening. I will be live streaming for the first time in over 4 years, this time to YouTube. You can catch my live stream on the StormTrack site at https://stormtrack.org/irma/
