Good news: Earl stopped strengthening and is apparently going through an eyewall replacement cycle. It remains a Category 4 storm, and may restrengthen again, but Category 5 may not be in the cards. Bad news: The hurricane center pushed the forecast track a little to the west again. In fact, the center says that "A HURRICANE WATCH WILL LIKELY BE REQUIRED FOR A PORTION OF THE MID-ATLANTIC COAST LATER TODAY." But we still don't know at all whether Earl will actually strike land, brush it, or remain entirely out in the open ocean. Clearly, Earl is going to keep us guessing.
