Rapid intensification?




The NHC mentioned in their discussion this morning that Gustav could rapidly intensify as it emerges from Jamaica and heads toward western Cuba. This would be due to very warm water and very little verical shear. They even mentioned the possibility of it becoming a Category Four storm as it approaches the Gulf. Either way, I think he will be come a hurricane later this morning or at least by this afternoon.
