Curious things in the long term weather forecast, a Hurricane!

OK, as a huge caveat, long term forecast models are notoriously unreliable.  A slightly smaller caveat, the Atlantic Hurricane season has not started yet.

But looking at the models I saw this thing set to run across Florida on May 25th.
Yep, that is a category one hurricane, predicted for two weeks from now, originating in the Caribbean, and rolling across Cuba, and then across the straights, over Florida, and emerging near the Florida/Georgia border in the Atlantic and then petering out over Georgia.

Shit son, I will have to keep an eye out for this one!

Ok, this turned out to be accurate!  Reasonably, considering how far out the forecast was!  Turned into sub-tropical storm Alberto!
