988 mb. Woah. That's a bit different from the 1001 mb five hours ago.

Still no Hurricane Warnings? 

Very possible this gets upgraded to a hurricane at 11. Current flight has several unflagged SFMR readings of near hurricane force and FL winds near 75 knots

This thing hasn't had the same center for an entire 24 hr period, it's just a washing machine with a brick in it. Fascinating to see, each time it relocates it's less and less far away as it becomes more and more symmetrical. 

Also, on radar, this thing is so so confined. It's a pretty dry, pretty small halfacane, thankfully.

Clear evidence of a hurricane at the mouth of Matagorda Bay. Elevation 7m. Assuming they see this observation, they'll upgrade.

Yeah it may be a "half'cane", but the northern band that is dragging the shoreline is brutal. Hopefully this gets punched hard by westerly 400-300 hPa flow to shear off that northern eyewall before it reaches the Galveston area.

We’re rooting for shear because we are scared of cat 1 halfacanes now?

I’m not here to fight. I am just here to advocate for landfalls with complete eyewalls and good chaser footage. Nobody needs harmed and I hope only rich people’s beach houses and fossil fuel infrastructure gets wiped out.

Center of the LLC keeps sliding parallel to coast, even if temporary. Fascinating how intense convective updrafts can bend and slip/jump the vortex down shear. But if the updraft within the eye band relaxes the slightest, it may succumb to upper horizontal flow and shear off, resulting in low-to-mid level steering flow regaining motion. Perhaps just enough motion to finally get the vortex inland.d471077350ddff364b71d62e17390593.gif
