In between Tiger Point and Mulberry Island, La as a category 3 with winds at 115 mph. The pressure will be 946mb.

I hope I am right since it is mostly just swamp land in that area.

Nice Job, Guys.
 
Maybe I should take up tropical forecasting... this is the second "contest" I've placed high in. I won a contest on forecasting landfall location and strength on Isabel last year...

Weathernews had their chance at hiring me in as a marine MET a year and a half ago... ah well, their loss. *grin*

Good job to Brett and Darin... and thanks Sam!
