Granted scott your right about lowering the pressure you get stronger winds. But if your ambient pressure around the storm is higher your core pressure will be higher to, But that does not always correlate. Smaller compact system have higher wind to pressure ratio. Andrew had 165mph winds and 922 pressure, Floyd abigger system had 921 pressure and 155 mph winds, Before andrew turned west he had 60 mph winds and 1015 millibar pressure. Here is a great Example Iris in 2001 very small i thought danny looked most like iris with a larger eye in over all sise comparison small and compact imbeded in a strong high pressure iris had 145mph winds at peak intesity with 945 millibar pressure. Plus There were no ship observation to prove that danny had that high of pressure purely speculitive just as fabian could be a 105 or 155.
