Quote: I know most everyone has this storm steadying or weakening, but seems like there is the potential for it to get up a little more steam. Just too many irregularities with this one.
...Believe me, I was in the camp of cat 5 zealots earlier in the day, too; especially when Rita went through that explosive regeneration of her CDO later in the afternoon... I was puzzled at the recon reports as the day grew old, the winds never really responding. I was also puzzled by the fact that the pressure stayed low, while this CDO prominence took shape which only underscores the former statement. Only 145...?
Don't get me wrong. I don't wish 200mph of body parts and building components in a froth of a storm generated tsunamis on anyway (not that the latter could ever happen - sounds good in sci-fi though!). However, just when we think we're getting the hang, more curve balls... It's called Tropical Meteorology. And, to add insult to injury, the pressure begins to rise subtly ...ish this evening. So, for whatever physical implausibility she may or may not be achieving, the winds may never need to respond to anything... That is why I'm beginning to pull back on return to cat 5...don't like pressure rises..
