Agree that it's still very intense on the NW side...just not as symmetrical as it used to be.
And you're right about the temp profile...pressure up, but good temp profile and a decent eye--who knows what he'll do!
True, but I think even in IR imagery the tops are higher to the northwest...if I'm looking at the true center, that is.
