Talking of curious things, I saw this post from a pilot in the islands today and am wondering if this phenomena is common, it is associated with TD1 so is on topic.
Quote ..... I have been flying during the time this area of weather was building so with the onboard data in the cockpit was able to see the changes occurring as I flew in and out of Cayman. One very dominant change occurred yesterday from all other days was the winds at different altitudes was so amazing and extreme. Above 20,000 ft the winds were just 10-18 knots, 20,000 ft down to 3,000 the winds were anywhere between 45-65 knots, and 3,000 ft to the surface were just 8-15 knots. I mention this because the higher winds normally occur at the higher levels and were almost sandwiched with extreme changes on both ends. Yes a bumpy ride passing through these changes, but only for a short duration.
