  1. Freeport TAF (Terminal Area Forecast) has a period of winds gusting to 200 knots... just absolutely bonkers to see.
  2. Correction to my prior statement about the USAF aircraft. I have no idea what it's doing, but the next scheduled flight to depart is around 4 AM ET.
  3. Looks like we're done with recon until around 12Z Saturday (about ten hours from now). We should have had the USAF in there this evening, but their aircraft went mechanical. Same with the NOAA upper-level reconnaissance flight. Overall, models are working with less data tonight compared to twelve hours ago.
  4. Guess they want to see what winds in the northeast quad are before committing to an upgrade. The only explanation I see is that they 'assume' the dropsonde winds were gusts versus sustained. Still, not particularly solid footing and I anticipate the post-storm report will correct it.
  5. Given the rapid intensification and ongoing deviation from the 5 PM advisory intensity guidance, I wouldn't be surprised to see a special advisory issued in lieu of the 8 PM update. The current forecast doesn't have 115 knots until Hour 36 (5 PM advisory).
  6. Dropsonde - 951 MB with a 13-knot splashdown, so around 950 millibars. A 20 millibar drop in about six hours.
  7. Indeed! I expect we'll see that revised in the post-storm report. Looks like NOAA's aircraft is en-route and it *appears* the Air Force has another aircraft airborne now too (although I believe that may just be ferrying to Florida).
  8. Keep in mind there likely are several members of the general public who are viewing this thread. Please consider leaving the 'banter' in the banter thread - including throwing out a bunch of 'prior systems' to compare this one too (many of which are poor analogs).
  9. Dropsonde 995MB with 23-knot splashdown - so 993MB..
