Mindy is (relatively speaking) impressive. Core wrapping up and good banging north of the center 

I bet a lot of people are pretty surprised about this storm but anytime you have a tropical anything over the gulf you got to pay attention if you life on the coast.

Particularly for the propensity to strengthen at landfall that's been the theme the last couple of years!

The small low-level vorticity maximum that developed is what got this going. Given another day or two, yadda yadda, would have probably been a hurricane.

Doubt it given the southerly shear but it certainly could’ve been a 50 kt tropical storm in the next 6-10 hours. Very impressive structure on radar for a weak ts, even trying to wrap some bands upshear

Not mid-level shear though. This is favorable upper level divergent shear in the exit region of a digging upper trough. Just saying it wasn't in an unfavorable location for continued strengthening.
