Quote: Looking back at the storm history, Rita was a 70 mph tropical storm exactly 24 hours ago... an increase of 105 mph in 24 hours, and a pressure drop of 93 MB. UNBELIEVABLE... if people had not predicted it two days ago, that is. Downright frightening in any case.
Correction... it was 110 mph 24-hours ago, with a pressure of 965. Your numbers had to be from 48-hours ago.
OOps, looked on the wrong line! Sorry about that. Still, a 68mb drop in 24 hours and a 93 mb drop in 48 is unbelievable.
ETA: Public advisory says movement is toward the WEST. Marine Advisory says the movement is toward the WEST-NORTHWEST OR 280 degrees. This kind of conflicting informing is dangerous.
