don't understand how they can keep saying wnw. I know the idea is that they believe motion will resume in that general direction but really you are right...its going just north of due west and believe in calling it like it is not what we hope it will do
especially keep in mind that the eye is funny shaped at time and the thin eye band around it is very narrow the broader band of strong winds stretches into funny shapes at times and so strong winds are further away from the eye circling around as it moves "westish" as opposed to if there was a very tight eye wall with a strong band. Winds are stretched out a bit over a broader area. Have heard it compared on local tv to Isabel?? and a few other recent storms that had a broader center of circulation.
also..looked to me on radar most of the afternoon that it intensified some .. at least five mphs but advisories have held to 105
