On a more recent note, here's a stunning image of Hurricane Blas as a cat 4, in the Eastern Pacific. Resembles Igor in a way... :wink:

:uarrow: If my memory serves me right, I think Blas was only a Category 4 for six hours overnight. The beautiful daytime pictures were taken when it had already weakened to 110 kts but it remained in this steady state for another 24 hours or so after coming down from category 4.

Just thought I'll add these images of twin cat 5 typhoons ivan (on the left ) and Joan (on the right) both had a peak of 185 mph and 905 mb
Image visible image,
Image infrared image
Also some satelite imagery of 3 typhoons in the west Pacific in September 1987, I believe all 3 were at least of cat 3 typhoon strength at the time of the satellite imagery, ( please correct me if I'm wrong )
Typhoon Gerald on the left , typhoon Freda in the middle, and typhoon Holly on the right.

Strongest pair of cyclones worldwide simultaneously never ceases to amaze me. Too bad no recon to investigate.

Correct...Gerald was a Cat 3, Freda a Cat 3 but shortly became a Cat 4, and Holly was a Cat 4 on it's way to a Cat 5 shortly after...

Cyclone Olivia near West Australia in 1996. She had amazing wispy bands- really looked like a vortex of death.

Gay never eases to amaze. Big circulation with fanning outflows. No wonder why it's considered one of the top typhoons that could be stronger than obsolete TIP. Highest dvorak for Gay was an amazing 8.7. I wonder what recon would have found as dvorak is low biased in these monsters. :eek:

Hurricane Matthew 2016...possibly the creepiest hurricane of all time! Thought I'd post this as we near Halloween.

Image

This was a one of a kind hurricane, and he was as dreadful as he looked on Satellite that morning he struck Haiti. Unbelievable how a category 4-5 landfalling cane could resemble an evil skull.

Not spectacular hurricanes, but I have some funny pictures from the last season.

Gotta go with Hugo or the oft-mentioned Isabel with the pinwheel in the eye.

If I'm not mistaken, that's the last radar shot from Coral Gables/Miami (forget which city it was) before it failed.
