    It's worth noting that not only did Tyndall AFB gust to 130mph, but a couple UF/WeatherFlow stations also recorded winds of that caliber for getting tossed around. The one that hit the eye (after the wind sensor died) recorded an 86/G129. The one station just SE of Mexico beach recorded 96/G126. Not to mention the FSU/Panama City station that hit 100/G116 before it also died (on an offshore wind). Given that there was a recorded 16.5mb pressure difference over 3.7 nmi and multiple datasets of ~920mb pressure, it's laughable that people are even considering this to be Cat1/Cat2. Hopefully the NHC appreciates your email though!

    One of the mesovorts is being picked up as a TVS on KEVX. The last frame had 157kt outbounds associated with it, and I think it's fairly legitimate.

    Port Saint Joe recorded gust to 84mph. Apalachicola now gusting to just under 80mph.

    Apalachicola Airport reported a 76mph gust in one of the more recent spiral bands. Velocities in the eastern eyewall are still routinely maxing out my color scale at 150kts... though we're down to a ~5000ft beam height now.

    Pretty obvious mesovorts in the eye. Reminiscent of Harvey near landfall last year with the wavenumber 5 pattern. Max velocities are roughly +125kts/-150kts at about a 8500ft beam height.

    Major Hurricane Florence

    Just took off a few minutes ago. Current recon turned back north, hopefully they can get one more good pass from south-north before leaving.

    Major Hurricane Florence

    Last recon pass has extrapolated SLPs down to 941mb and unflagged SFMR winds of 117kt. No dropsondes have come in yet.

    Major Hurricane Florence

    12z run just a touch slower than 00z Euro. Shifts the majority of the heavy rain from NC/VA and northward. Not a good look through 120HR

    The cornfield airport KAAA hit 91/79/108 as I left today and then 90/80/107 later. At this point it doesn’t feel that bad.

    A lot of record flooding along most of the creeks in the DSM metro area. Hopefully the next couple batches don't add up to much. Check out the Des Moines twitter account for a lot of pictures/videos.

    Correct, ILX/IND and others have a 110F criteria, compared to 105F for LOT/IWX.

    Pop up thunderstorm this morning dumped about a 1/2” of rain and a few nice CGs. This pic was looking east while we tried to wait out the morning sounding launch.
