It's like watching 2004 or 2005 in the Atlantic, with less landfalling systems of course but just as interesting. Intensity forecast has been a headache for the NHC, they will surely learn some lessons from this season.

Sergio 1982. It peaked at 110 knots, very close to category 4 threshold.

There was another one this season that I thought was one of the fastest "plunges", Simon out-did whatever it was . The rate of weakening has sharply declined though in the past 8 hours.
