The 52 knot one still had rain rates of 20 mm. I use 10 mm as my baseline, anything over maybe 12 starts getting into reduction territory, anything 10 and under is good as long as it isn't flagged...11 and 12 can go either way.

Center is very close to the coast. Appears to be about 20 miles south of the NHC position.

Flight level winds still support for them to upgrade it to a Tropical Storm, my guess 50 mph.

yeah radar also showing what may be the beginning of a eyewall feature.



Amazing how frequently you can see rapid intensification in the BOC, even that close to land. Sure looks like it's trying to form an eyewall.

Yes, I estimate it to be around 30 miles east of Veracruz, should be making landfall in the next 3-4 hrs, IMO.

What are the chances of this pulling a Humberto (2007)?

With it being very close to land...almost no chance.

It only has a few more hours before landfall. I maintain that we'll get a moderate tropical storm out of this. 50-60 mph.

Perhaps if it had moved a little slower over the past 24 hours, it would've approached hurricane intensity.

:uarrow: I agree. It's just too late. If it had another 12 hours I'm pretty sure it would have since it's definitely been building an eyewall in the mid-levels. (Although the NHC is saying 12 hours til landfall that seems way too long given the forward speed and distance from land.)

NHC is forecasting it to reach 60mph winds...So maybe a moderate TS.

Recon has 1003.1mb with a 22 kt SFMR, so pressure likely 1001mb now.

Radar center looks to be north of the recon center.

I stopped watching the tropics for about 4+ days and its been a week since a full check and a short-lived TS name taker comes right when I check in. I was expecting nothing but this isn't that large of a step from that.

2%.

Your right for the wrong reasons, Humberto was close to land when it was exploding but I thought the overall structure of him 10 hours before landfall was amazing to begin with so he was set properly for the blow-out.

There's that line again, getting closer to becoming a weather ciche. Most of the time its "would be a hurricane."
