First hurricane of the year

Ernesto underwent a lot of changes overnight and was upgraded to hurricane status early this morning. The forecast track also shifted to the north quite a bit putting Cuba squarely in Ernesto's sights and then the Florida Keys by mid week. The longer 5 day forecast even has it curving around and going over north central Florida by the end of the week. If that track holds up, Ernesto could be bruhsing past the Georgia and SC coasts by this time next week.
