Wilma Becomes Hurricane In Caribbean; Track Moved Toward Florida: The forecast track is changing a lot, but that can be expected when we are so far out from a possible U.S. landfall of the record-tying Hurricane Wilma. The latest track suggests landfall on Florida’s west coast, or in the Keys. Of course, this can change, and anyone along the Gulf Coast and Florida should keep an eye on Wilma.

Wierd Wilma News: Richard C. Hoagland was on Coast To Coast AM last night, discussing something that showed up in radar loops for Ophelia and now Wilma: Somebody’s trying to kill Wilma! | Wilma loop — direct link Wait ’til Scott Stevens sees this! … The disclaimer on this page offers an explanation. (Thanks, Geoff Scott for the tip)
