There's a pretty looking storm... It looks quite a bit stronger than the 45 knots the JTWC has it as.

It doesn't look like there is any shear affecting the storm at all.

There is hardly any shear at all around the storm. It looks really, really good.

This is one of my favorite places to see TC's . . . not quite sure why, but maybe they just kind of fit well in this spot?

Regardless, Guba is pulling its act together quite nicely right now, and I wouldn't be surprised to see it strengthen a little faster than what JTWC is calling for.

3 dead in Papua New Guinea due to flooding from Guba.

BTW, if you're curious how to pronounce Guba, it rhymes with Cuba.

Not necessarily . . . eyes/eye features can start forming well before sustained winds reach SS-Cat 1 strength, as is probably the case here. Of course, it is generally a good sign that strengthening to hurricane-force winds is imminent, but not necessarily that they exist the moment an eye pops out.
