Question

I don't get this.
I just checked the National Data Buoy Center and they have a buoy that's located 15.90N by 57.90W.
The storm center is 21.6N by 57.8W. That's damn near on top of the buoy and the data recorded off it says the wind speed is 13kts and wave height is 4.9ft. That was at 1500 eastern time.
I know it could be in the eye of the storm but the data from the past 24 hours shows light winds and calm seas.
What gives?????
I was looking forward to some incredible winds and sea heights.

We just had a newsperson to newsperson (CBS) verbal conflict on the descriptive word "beautiful" that the weather man used.
Looks like more certain info will be provided about Wednesday..

Unfortunately they keep citing the Carolinas as most likely if at all...

I've been saying for a week that it would hit the Carolinas.

Prevailing weather conditions are indicating that the closer the storm gets to the U.S. the more norther track they believe it will take. There's even an outside chance it may miss the mainland completely, but that would be just way too lucky. Looks like North Carolina, Virginia have the most to worry about. However, they still won't have a good idea until Sunday night/Monday morning. Just keeping our fingers crossed. Hopefully it will spare all of us.

That's an understatement! You don't live 3 blocks from the oceanfront!! Current track shows it taking the worst possible track for us. Up the Pamilco and Albermarle Sounds. That puts the worst quadrant of the storm directly overhead. NOT GOOD.

Better get some boating in this weekend.
