What's up with Henri?

For a little while this morning, it looked like Henri, a tropical depression with winds near 35 mph at 2 p.m., was scheduling a future date with the Florida peninsular. At 8 a.m., one of the computer models showed the path of the system curling north up the southwest Florida coast, then scooting up to the west of Tampa Bay.

That model has changed significantly, however, this afternoon. Most of the models have a consensus track, with Henri staying on a westerly course, skirting northern parts of Cuba come a few days down the road.

Forecasters, however, aren't putting much stock in Henri's future, saying at 2 p.m. that it will likely dissipate into a remnant low by Thursday night.
