Do you have a source for the 175 knots? I have trouble believing that even Haiyan would have 200mph winds, and Megi's presentation was not even close to Haiyan's. Of course, you can't determine winds from the structure, but I can't help but feel more skeptical of it. The only time I could fully accept 175 knots is in a really explosively intensifying storm with a tiny eye, like Forrest (not the best example though, since apparently Forrest's winds were only 150 knots).
The HDOB's I posted above support 175 knots.
Just curious, why do you have problems believing that Haiyan had 175 knots?
I'm not sure. I'm dubious with any estimate that high, even if it's a storm as impressive as Haiyan. I don't even think the Labor Day storm of 1935 had winds of 200mph.
