Quote: If you look at the infra-red shots, you will see the deepening purples now surrounding the storm. This is a solid indication that the cloud tops are cooling, and cooling rapidly. What does that mean, only one thing, it is getting it's act together, CAT 5 tonight into the morning while over this eddy.
There is no deep purple currently, only red... and even that is less than it was two hours ago. The storm appears to be growing in size once again, though. Eye looks cloud filled at the surface. Definately mixed signals, but it could strengthen to cat 5 by the intermediate advisory if not sooner.
