Chris,there are no Vortex Messages in the NOAA mission because they fly more high?

By the way, I can stop posting obs as plane from NOAA is ascending, isn't it?

Edit: I can post the observation of the new plane for one more hour though.

I didn't even notice that one, is it flying at a lower altitude than Kermit?

Sorry, the post was unclear. I meant when they descend will they be flying inside Tomas lower than Kermit?

I have to go, who wants to keep posting the observations?

By the way Canerecon, this plane is going to fly at a lower altitude than the previous one.

Oh good, we can get some vortex passes. By the way, I can post it for about 30 minutes.

Who wants to post the obs from the NOAA3 plane that is now nearing Tomas? I can't this morning as I have a medical appointment (Nothing serious,only a routine checkup) :)

Sounds like we now have near constant recon, probably a good idea given its getting closer to the islands now...
