Hurricane Ian Strengthens, “Significant Uncertainty” On Model Track

From the discussion of the 5AM NHC advisory on Hurricane Ian:

It should again 
be stressed that there is still significant uncertainty in the track
of Ian, especially in the 3-5 day time frame, and users should not
focus on the details of the track forecast at longer time ranges.

Uncertainty Remains High In Latest Tropical Storm Ian Forecast

Discussion from the NHC 5AM advisory on Tropical Storm Ian:

 Ian is expected to remain a major hurricane when it moves
generally northward across the eastern Gulf of Mexico during the
middle of the week, but uncertainty in the long-term track
and intensity forecast is higher than usual. Regardless of Ian’s
exact track and intensity, there is a risk of dangerous storm
surge, hurricane-force winds, and heavy rainfall along the west
coast of Florida and the Florida Panhandle by the middle of
the week, and residents in Florida should ensure they have their
hurricane plan in place, follow any advice given by local officials,
and closely monitor updates to the forecast.
