What? Mobile should be preparing for a direct hit from a cat 2 or 3.
It seems like so many times through the years when one has been projected to hit Mobile they go east of us by just a tad.
The low areas on the NGOM pretty much have to respect anything above a strong TS... When it comes to the core winds, in this case 100 mph, I think of it as around a 30 mile circle of destruction. Those last minute wobbles make all the difference and the chances of being in that 30 mile circle are pretty low even if you are in the warning area.
But you have to be ready if in the warning area.. Have to respect it...
