Quote: Here you go Hugh: "WITH THE LATEST CENTRAL PRESSURE AT 945 MB. THE AIRCRAFT HAVE FOUND FLIGHT-LEVEL WINDS AS HIGH AS 119 KT AT 8000 FT IN THE OUTER EYEWALL"
From the 5:00 Discussion. Those were flight level winds. I must have read the report wrong. My apologies.
I thought that seemed a bit high...
I assumed it was flight level (but didn't want to say it ). Anyway, they have not YET measured stronger winds at the surface. The 7pm advisory may see an increase there if the EWRC is finished by then, which looks possible anyway.
