The cone is starting to firm up for Hurricane Elsa, which is expected to hi the southern tip of Florida late Monday or early Tuesday as a strong tropical storm. People who have never been in the path of a tropical storm don't realize how huge these things are. A typical storm might have tropical-storm-force winds 50 miles from the center of the storm. A simple calculation gives the area affected, which can be over 7800 square miles, and it's moving constantly.
We will continue to keep a weather eye on this thing.
The good news is that it will beat its brains out on the southern flanks of Cuba's mountains. Not great news for Cubans.
