IVAN UPGRADED TO CAT 5. Ivan is now officially a Category 5 hurricane with sustained winds at over 155 mph. He's picking up strength over warmer water and steaming toward Jamaica, then Cuba. NOAA computer forecast models vary beyond three days, but most send Ivan the Terrible into the southwest coast of Florida. Will he still be packing Cat 5 fury when he makes USA landfall sometime on Monday?

TRACK IVAN. You can track Ivan at http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/. Most other web weather sites get their info from the National Hurricane Center, though others are more creative with their web presentations. Most comprehensive and colorful hurricane tracking site: Tropical Weather Information by Crown Weather Service of Limestone, Maine: http://www.crownweather.com/tropical.html
