Quote: I agree with you Hugh, I really expected her to get knocked down more. Especially the length of time the eye has been inland. Could be due to the flat topography and the fact that 4/5 ths of the storm is still over warm water.
And that brings up another disturbing possibility... One of the earlier hurricanes this season - Dennis I think - went over the Yucatan as a T.D. The COC then REFORMED to the north of the Yucatan... and ultimately moved almost due north. With Wilma's cold cloud tops returning over the GOM, we could see her COC reform, which would throw a monkey into the equation.
