Current bearing is very slightly to the west of Mobile. Obviously, NHC doesn't think this cane is going to move very much left or right. from the current heading. I can't recall seeing such a narrow cone this far from landfall.

That indicates very high confidence in their track. Any fence-sitters out there, it may be time to pack up, board up, shut down, and get the heck outta there. With such a narrow cone, anyone anywhere near the coast would be a bit foolhardy to hang around, unless absolutely sure of their safety.

By sometime overnight, conditions are going to start going downhill. But tomorrow morning, conditions will be rapidly deteriorating, making travel difficult.

I'm getting VERY concerned about MS and even SE LA... so many people there are not prepared.

I just really hope it follows the NHC track(no offense to those in the path), but at least your prepared.

HURRICANE DENNIS DISCUSSION NUMBER 21
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
5 PM EDT SAT JUL 09 2005

WHAT A DIFFERENCE 6 HOURS MAKES! SATELLITE...RADAR...AND NOAA AND
AIR FORCE RECONNAISSANCE DATA INDICATE DENNIS HAS POSSIBLY STARTED
A RAPID DEEPENING PHASE. THE EYE HAS BECOME BECOME DEFINED IN BOTH
RADAR AND SATELLITE IMAGERY...AND THE PRESSURE IS NOW 955 MB...DOWN
ALMOST 10 MB IN THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WINDS ARE GRADUALLY BEGINNING
TO CATCH UP WITH THE PRESSURE FALLS AS INDICATED BY A 700 MB
FLIGHT-LEVEL WIND OF 101 KT...EQUAL TO ABOUT A 91 KT SURFACE WIND
...IN THE NORTHEAST QUADRANT.

THE INITIAL MOTION ESTIMATE IS 325/12. DENNIS HAS MADE A LARGE
WOBBLE TO THE WEST-NORTHWEST IN THE PAST 2 HOURS...BUT THIS IS
PROBABLY A TEMPORARY MOTION DUE TO THE DEEP CONVECTION HAVING
EXPLODED AND WRAPPED AROUND THE WEST SIDE OF THE EYE. ONCE THE
CONVECTIVE PATTERN BECOMES MORE SYMMETRICAL...I EXPECT DENNIS TO
RESUME A NORTHWEST MOTION OF 320 TO 325 DEGREES. THE NEW 18Z NHC
MODEL GUIDANCE IS MORE CONVERGENT AND IS NOW IN BETTER AGREEMENT ON
A TRACK TOWARD THE WESTERN FLORIDA PANHANDLE TO SOUTHERN ALABAMA
AREA. THE NOGAPS AND GFDN MODELS HAVE SHIFTED SHARPLY TO THE RIGHT
...OR EAST OF LOUISIANA...AND THE NHC MODEL CONSENSUS HAS ALSO
SHIFTED TO THE RIGHT AND CLOSER TO THE PREVIOUS 3 NHC FORECAST
TRACKS. AS A RESULT...NO SIGNIFICANT CHANGE WAS MADE TO THE
PREVIOUS FORECAST TRACK.

THE CENTRAL PRESSURE OF 955 MB NORMALLY WOULD SUPPORT AN INITIAL
INTENSITY OF 105-110 KT...BUT THE INNER CORE PRESSURE GRADIENT IS
STILL FLAT DUE TO LAND INTERACTION WITH CUBA LAST NIGHT. HOWEVER...
THE SMALL 10-15 NMI DIAMETER EYE...RECENT SHARP PRESSURE FALLS...
WARM WATER AHEAD OF THE CYCLONE...AND IMPRESSIVE OUTFLOW ALL
SUGGEST THAT DENNIS SHOULD GO ON AND INTENSIFY INTO A MAJOR
HURRICANE...AND POSSIBLY EVEN REGAIN CATEGORY 4 STRENGTH BEFORE IT
MAKES LANDFALL ON SUNDAY.

VARIOUS WIND RADII WERE INCREASED BASED ON RECON DATA

Scary thought that a Cat. 4 hurricane could make landfall near Pensacola, but that's possible.
