It looks like it's got bags under its eye. Is it as tired of 2020 as we are?

I wonder how sped up that is compared to real time?

It’s not real storm motion. It’s an animation that can be set up over a still frame. The mesovorts in the eye would not be stationary and the eyewall convection would be much more vigorous. Cool animation, especially the panning, but it’s not accurate.

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.
