Eta at her peak. If I were to guess intensity based on appearance alone, I would say at least 150 kts.

Iota is already challenging Eta for the title of the most impressive November Atlantic TC. This looks like an August or September Caribbean Cruiser, not something on NOVEMBER 15th.

I am neither a meteorology student nor a professional, I'm just a meteorology enthusiast who knows a decent amount about tropical cyclones. Look to the professional mets, the NHC, or your local weather office for the best information.
