Compared to the chart for yesterday the chart for today shows that the high from the Gulf of Mexico has linked to the high from the mid Atlantic but that the linkage has moved to the northeastern section of the Gulf. The important element in the tracking now looks to be the low transiting the continent (green). It is approaching the jet curve (green line) that is from the previous eclipse earlier this month. That line is still under a low-pressure value from the stationary lunar node. It should be expected that this low would increase in intensity as it approaches this jet curve. That would put a steering trough over the eastern third of the continent and probably draw the storm along the yellow path outlined in the chart. This is a very unusual storm, very intense and very sensitive in its tracking values.
