It's so bizarre to me how storms this year can't go beyond that 150-155 mph hump....

It's quite likely that it was above the 155 mph hump in earlier recon passes.  There are some hints in the IR of a bit of core degradation relative to the peak earlier this morning.

This is probably the hurricane most likely to be upgraded post analysis if they don't do it here in the next 20 minutes or so.

I don't think they will, with the degradation of satellite appearance

A resident of Bilwi, a coastal town in Nicaragua, said some locals were refusing to leave their homes for fear of catching coronavirus in shared shelters.

"Some of us prefer to stay and die in our homes. There has never been a repeat hurricane in such a short time, but what can we do against the force of God and nature," Silvania Zamora told AFP news agency.

It's still marginal. One can make a relative case that the various flight level winds and pressure continue to support between 155 and 160. I agree that the appearance is a touch worse than earlier this am when it was strengthening at an astounding 10mb/hr. It's a question of whether or not they want to go with the earlier unquestionable cat 5 data or the current marginal 5 data.

140 knots that was being recorded earlier are solid  161-162mph. Truth be told there was solid 170mph that was not recorded

Honduras, northern Nicaragua, southeast Guatemala and southern
Belize: 10 to 20 inches (250 to 500 mm). Isolated maximum totals of
30 inches (750 mm) will be possible, especially from northeast
Nicaragua into northern Honduras.

This is going to be very bad.

A century since the hyperactive 1933 season, and 2005 and 2020 15 years apart, I think something may be happening to the climate.

2017 was hyperactive. One of the worst Cape Verde seasons we've experienced as well. So technically just 3 years apart.

2012 was no picnic either.

Despite the warming climate and flurry of powerful storms we've seen in recent years, the fact that no storms have even flirted with sub-900 mb shows how ridiculous 2005 was (two sub-900 storms, one 902).
