Checked out hurricane websites today?

Uh, hellooooo Isaac?
Don't look now, but judging by the National Hurricane Center website and other tropical related websites akin to the NHC, there might be a little tropical storm activity heading our way.
Of course, it's too early for the experts to predict what's going exactly where.
But ...
First, there is the system presently tagged "Invest 94L."
At 4 p.m. Monday, it was cranking along at 20-25 mph and headed west, 900 miles east of the Lesser Antilles.
The NHC gave it an 80 percent chance of developing into a tropical cyclone -- that would be Isaac -- in the next 48 hours.
And right behind is another potential storm the NHC gives a 30-percent chance of turning into trouble.
That one is too far away to focus on yet.
Not Invest 94L.
What really got our attention were the "spaghetti models" -- potential storm tracks -- on
They've got one line curving up our side of Florida.
There's another line that cuts across Cuba and is aimed at South Florida, too.
The most prominent line has it curving away from us and the U.S. East Coast altogether.
Hope that last one's on the money.
