Quote: There looks like an "eye" on the Miami radar but the "eye" is still not showing on the IR or the visible loops. From the sounds of the recon it is very close to hurricane status. Does an eye or even a eye on radar by itself in a storm make it a cane? It is all dependant on the windspeed correct?
Yeah, its all about windspeed when it comes to official classification but that presentation pretty much comes with the pressure and windspeed to support the status....
She was close at the 11 AM without the presentation - with the convection wrapping around the center like this its pretty clearly deepening enough to support the upgrade.
