Anyone have links to any land-based doppler sites?

If doppler readings suggested an upgrade on Rita, would the NHC follow suit?

Saw your post, and I can tell you that I would be surprised if in fact ( soon to be ) Wilma does NOT develop into a Cat. 2. My gut feeling ( from chasing and tracking for years ), is that Wilma has the potential to develop into Cat. 4. Providing the system does not have NE shear develop over it, and that the 500mb high over the U.S. does not push Wilma all the way towards Belize ( which is possible ), I beleive we will at minimum see a Cat. 2 in the W. Carib. within 3 days.
