She's racing off at 47mph. Give 2 more records to Wilma. Strong October storm at her latitute. If she isn't now she's gaining so much latitude and losing very little strength, so she will be soon. Also, strongest storm to be moving at this speed. Certainly she'll go even faster soon.

Are they still flying recon to Wilma? I wonder if its any harder to sample a storm when its going 47mph.

HURRICANE WILMA DISCUSSION NUMBER 41
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
5 AM EDT TUE OCT 25 2005

THE CLOUD PATTERN OF WILMA IS BEGINNING TO DETERIORATE...WITH THE
EYE BECOMING LESS DISTINCT AND THE CONVECTION BECOMING LESS
SYMMETRIC. THE RECONNAISSANCE FIX NEAR 00Z WAS ABOUT 40 MILES TO
THE WEST OF THE SATELLITE EYE AND AN SSMI PASS AT 0136Z ALSO
SUGGESTS THAT THE LOW-LEVEL CENTER MAY BE DECOUPLING. THE INITIAL
INTENSITY IS LOWERED TO 100 KT. THIS WEAKENING TREND IS EXPECTED
TO CONTINUE AND WILMA SHOULD LOSE TROPICAL CHARACTERISTICS OVER
ROUGHLY 20C WATERS IN ANOTHER DAY OR SO.

THE TRACK FORECAST OF WILMA AND ITS EXTRATROPICAL REMNANTS IS NOT
STRAIGHTFORWARD. IN THE SHORT TERM...WILMA IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE
BRISKLY NORTHEASTWARD...ALTHOUGH THE FORWARD SPEED COULD BE SLOWER
THAN SHOWN BELOW SHOULD THE VORTEX SHEAR OUT MORE RAPIDLY THAN
ANTICIPATED. GLOBAL MODELS AGREE ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN
EXTRATROPICAL LOW CLOSE TO NEW ENGLAND OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS. THE
UKMET AND NOGAPS VORTEX TRACKERS ARE CONFUSING WILMA WITH THIS
DEVELOPING CYCLONE...WHICH CONTAMINATES THE MODEL CONSENSUS...WHILE
THE GFDL ROTATES WILMA CYCLONICALLY AROUND THE NEW LOW INTO THE
CANADIAN MARITIMES IN 24-36 HOURS. THE GFS MAINTAINS WILMA AS A
SEPARATE ENTITY TO THE EAST OF THE DEVELOPING CYCLONE...AND THIS IS
THE SOLUTION PREFERRED BY THE OFFICIAL FORECAST. SHOULD WILMA
COMPLETELY DECOUPLE DURING THE NEXT 24 HOURS HOWEVER...THE
LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION OF WILMA IS LIKELY TO GET ABSORBED INTO THE
DEVELOPING CYCLONE AND NOT SURVIVE MORE THAN 36-48 HOURS OR SO.

HURRICANE WILMA DISCUSSION NUMBER 42
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
11 AM EDT TUE OCT 25 2005

MORNING SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS THAT WILMA IS WEAKENING AND
BEGINNING TO LOSE TROPICAL CHARACTERSTICS. AN SSM/I OVERPASS AT
1117Z SHOWS THAT THE CENTER IS NORTHWEST OF THE PRIMARY
CONVECTION...WHILE VISIBLE IMAGERY SHOWS COLD AIR CLOUDS SOUTH OF
THE CENTER AND A DEVELOPING COLD FRONT IN THE SOUTHEASTERN
QUADRANT. WILMA SHOULD MOVE NORTH OF THE GULF STREAM IN THE NEXT
12-24 HR...WHICH SHOULD FINISH OFF THE REMAINING CENTRAL CONVECTION
AND THE REMAINING TROPICAL CHARACTERISTICS. THE LARGE-SCALE MODELS
LIKE TO LOSE WILMA IN THE WARM FRONT OF A BAROCLINIC LOW CENTERED
NEAR THE NORTHEASTERN COAST OF THE UNITED STATES IN LESS THAN 72
HR. GIVE THE STRENGTH OF THE SYSTEM...IT WILL PROBABLY LAST A BIT
LONGER THAN THAT.

THE INITIAL MOTION IS A VERY RAPID 045/046. ASSUMING WILMA IS NOT
ABSORBED BY THE BAROCLINIC LOW...THE FORECAST TRACK WILL TURN THE
CYCLONE EASTWARD OVER THE TOP OF A DEEP-LAYER RIDGE IN THE CENTRAL
ATLANTIC THROUGH 72 HR...FOLLOWED BY AN EAST-NORTHEASTWARD MOTION
BEFORE DISSIPATION.

High res pics of Wilma over the Caribbean:

http://rapidfire.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/gall ... 0.500m.jpg

The first and second image are from different times. There are 4 difference resolutions available for each image (2km, 1km, 500m, and 250m)... The first link is to a 1km image, and the second to a 500m image. MODIS images are amazing, so check out more of them at http://rapidfire.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/gallery/

Just 20 deg west too far. :( (Although the Met Office model does appear to bring it over this way)
