Generally compact storms are in the strongest part of it's life cycle. As it grows older it becomes bigger, usually because it's weakening, as the pressure gradient becomes larger the wind speed becomes usually weaker. It's hard to say with this storm because we don't know how strong it can get, these Cape Verde (CV) systems sometimes become very strong (ex. Isabel) and then weaken when they come near land.
