Re: Hurricane Irene Landfalls at Cape Lookout, NC

Looking at Morehead radar, looks like the eyewall has almost completely regenerated with only a small gap on the ENE side. The eye is very much rain filled and quite ragged, but it does exist. The storm has definitely recovered from the dry air ingestion that occurred overnight. It's still hours from reentering oceanic water, and the eye may not hold together until then. If it does hold together, expect a small amount of restrengthening off the coast before it starts impacting the Delmarva.

Conditions 1140: outside Annapolis, MD: 15-25mph winds; sporadic light rain.

My anemometer is reporting low by about 5-10mph...had to use a hand gauge.

And just in case anyone is wondering about my sanity, my command center.
