Craig over at Metroblogging talks about the various forecast models and wonders if Harrah's should be taking bets on them.
Matt over at Blogging New Orleans provides a link to "a website that offers a constantly updated satellite stream of the Atlantic, and shows with great clarity the development of Dean from a cloud system off the coast of Africa to the bruiser it has become."
