Tropical cyclones can be very unpredictable, especially in path. Some hurricanes quickly pose an immediate threat to land, while others harmlessly drift into the icy Canadian waters. Most formed hurricanes would move West or Northwest, but many tropical waves, remnants of U.S. storms, and wind shear affect the path of the hurricane. Hurricanes travel into the Gulf of Mexico usually because there is very little other activity affecting the storm, or influencing to move away to the Gulf's entrance.
