Re: Good morning....looking over some stuff

I think there's a few reasons why based on living here for 30 years and following every storm that's entered the gulf. You would think the perfect hit on Tampa Bay would be a storm moving East or ENE. When a storm moves more E in the GOM, it's getting torn apart by shear or riding a cold front usually. That's not conducive for strong storms. Tampa Bay gets their fair share of Tropical storms and some cat. 1 hurricanes, but not the major ones. Hermine last year was a perfect nearly  made landfall here and we got really bad weather, but it was sheared apart pretty good moving to the ENE.

The really strong hurricanes that do enter the Eastern or Central Gulf move more Westerly, NW or North. The ones that are going more NNE have tended to hit the panhandle. The more NE they move, the more they're getting sheared it seems. Charley was the one perfect scenario, I thought, for Tampa to get a big storm because it was moving their way NNE at the perfect angle, but it made a right turn. The geography is hard for them. Like I said, powerful hurricanes just do not move E or ENE in the Gulf.
