Thanks -- no, I'm not. I'm still completing studies in meteorology at the graduate level, but aim to become a researcher & professor some day. The first part has already happened, the second will come down the road.
I did see the post in the other forum, but do not know enough about the situation to really make a comment. The data in the other storm suggested a storm neaing extratropical status; this one is obviously a tropical cyclone. It could have been two of those mesovortices becoming strong enough to become self-sufficient with their own eyewalls and everything, but that's just a guess on my part. That whole field is certainly something that needs further studies.
