Major Hurricane Grace

968mb extrapolated, 85 kts SFMR. It will probably be upgraded to cat 2

I kinda figured. A pig with lots of nasty convection is better than something that cleared a ragged eye just because. Josh is going to take a nice beating.

Finally about to get the first real eye of the Atlantic season

Still a good bit of ocean left to cross as well. Should be a pretty hurricane at landfall. Josh is at the forecast landfall to punch the core. Looks like Grace is going to be a sexxy beast afterall.

Any word from Josh post-landfall? Last I saw from him he was driving through the eyewall of a rapidly intensifying borderline cat 4 on the coast at night. Hope all is well! 

I don't like his decision to drive through the eye to get the landfall point perfectly.    He needs to get too a well built structure with plenty of time to spare and stay put during these types of storms. Better to miss the eye by a few miles than be trapped in rising water on an empty stretch of road in a foreign country.   They'll always be another storm.

That being said he probably just lost power and internet.  He's taken a few days to resurface in past storms.
