The NHC will take the surface winds measured by a recon dropsonde and subtract an additional millibar off the observed pressure for every 10 kt of winds observed to estimate the true central pressure. Could the same procedure be done here?
I believe the winds were not calm, but they had diminished - not sure exactly how much. I put 894 down on the BT idea for that.
