As I recall, three things to consider to understand storm strength:
* Winds, which are directly related to current central core strength. * Size, which is completely independent of anything but size and windfield diameter. * Storm surge, which is a combination of current central pressure and past central pressure.
It is storm surge which is most effected by a storm that was previously strong, since it often takes time for the surge to subside away from a storm when the pressure rises, just as it takes time for the surge to build when the pressure falls.
