Major Hurricane Delta

This is what happens when the season kinda sucks. We have to hang our hopes on these floor model hurricanes with weird defects and obsess over their structure. 

Such a troll... I love it lol

Southern part of the core looks like it's tightened up.   Maybe this next attempt at an eye will have better luck.

The bones are sturdy, if this is in GMT then this is a couple hours old, it CDT then current. Either way, the inner structure is looking really good. Satellite porn to follow.

Seems like the east side is struggling to get the really cold cloud tops to stay. Good banding to the north and northwest but definitely lacking east. Delta still looks much better though than it ever has

Oh those crazy Texan cloud seeders at it again...

I'm not seeing any shear over Delta right now at all. It's definitely taking advantage of whatever it can.

There's about 8-10 kts of southerly shear. Relatively too weak to prevent intensification but perhaps enough to keep downshear convection weaker as CBs go up and rotate around the eyewall. As Delta turns more northward and gains forward motion, there will be a window tonight (6-12 hrs) where shear is weakest prior to an increase in SSW VVW flow and mid-level shear prior to landfall. That and cooler SSTs should eventually put a halt on whatever intensification is gained by Delta through mid-day tomorrow.  That should be prior to landfall.

Wow... And just like that, a strong CB went up in the eastern eyewall and is rotating around in the northern semicircle. This has the look of a strong Category 3 hurricane. Need recon.5f3158e92a2e727dafb1c901d99a9e6c.gif&key=cb3f5ad51d1387234ecaea6eb241135c185d3366103ce51ea74ef09327ad3984

Made a screen shot of Delta's tail. Wishing you luck in dealing with this storm. 1154454489_Delta1.png.74b5ab0a31ef7e36987ed519b1755d09.png

 

 

Thanks LPL. That southern outflow 'tail' really looked impressive in the various satellite animations when I could see them.

Have two usual probs, first, when I downloaded the sat 'gifs', they were just a little bigger than AmWX allows as an upload [~1.95Mb? for me], so couldn't post the animation myself [sometimes can]. My second prob is a highly variable IP connection, ranges from 16Kbps to 3-6Mbps, which severely affects my use of image -intensive websites like this. Gonna dodge Delta here methinks.

The next band in line to cause a convective burst looks even juicier,  so hopefully nothing disrupts it.

Has there ever been a case of identical US landfall spots occurring with 2 storms in the same year?
