First the bad news. Practically every model has Hurricane Gustav getting out into open water in the Gulf. If this follows it practically guarantees as U.S. coastal hit.

Now the really bad news. The Gulf is very warm right now which makes Gustav a potential "bomb".

The slightly hopeful news is the water near the Florida coast is slightly cooler meaning Gustav could weaken before landfall. Also there is a new disturbance just to the north which may cause this bad boy to weaken.

No matter what. This is a scary looking storm and bears watching.
