Can't tell you why, but can say that I'm happy with that. Keep'em down that way, away from the US mainland. Granted, it's not a good situation for Mexico and the islands though.

I did research on this topic for my senior research in college two years ago. Basically, the hurricanes are so far south because of the ridging over the Atlantic & east coast prevent them from moving to far north. It's a climate cycle were in. A cycle that favors so called 'straight moving' hurricanes...meaning the coasts from TX to NC are fair game; as well as Central America & the Caribbean get hammered, while we up the coast are protected.

Its a multi year cycle...ranges from 5 to 7 years between peak and lull.

Felix...oh yea, that was pretty explosive intensification. It has weakened quite a lot though (down to 115kts gusting 145kts). It looks like the storm sucked in some dry air from the north and is undergoing an eyewall replacement cycle at the same time. It would actually be best for those in the path if it were to hit now, before reorganizing...
