Quote: This storm just keeps on amazing me. Jeanne's over the water temp that could support a tropical storm but yet it's mataining everything all so well. This storm is exteremly efficent at maintaining itself, It's really going to strengthen once it's over the Gulf stream.
Using the car analogy; It takes less gas to maintain highway speed than to accellerate to that speed. So, it doesn't take as much heat to maintain or only gradually weaken (coasting) than it would to build it to the same level. While Jeanne couldn't build to its current level with those temps, it might 'coast' down quite slowly. As it isn't really fighting shear or other killers, it seems likely this is why.
