8. I wouldn't be surprised if it burns out

right where it is. No forward movement. Pressure steadily rising. Where is the energy going to come from to get it moving again?

I heard an interesting interview yesterday with a woman scientist who talked about why the pressure is rising due to the churning up of deeper colder water from Dorian staying in place AND the influence of warmer Arctic wind currents rather than cooler ones ( an effect of climate change) apparently make these hurricanes move when the cooler winds meet the warmer tropical winds of the hurricane.

That warm/cold air confrontation fueling movement was something I didn't know.

When you think about basic physics, it takes energy to overcome inertia (of an object). Does that hold true for a stalled hurricane? If so, where is the source of energy to get it moving again?

How long does it have to wait for cooler Arctic air currents to arrive? Will that happen before the pressure rises enough that it no longer becomes anything more than a tropical storm?
