Hurricane Irene Wobbles to left – Satellite Image August 24 2011

I have a bad feeling about this. Trough stalled in GA at this time, next front on the way may be to late to steer Irene away especially if she gets larger and stronger. Irene may come closer to Florida as was originally thought. Hope I’m wrong. Definite wobble to the left….
