At 348 est, 26.2/84.0 had flight level winds of 21.85 mph at 220 degrees
At 308 pm est, 26.0/83.8 had flight level winds of 13.8 mph at 200 degrees.
I note that the 308 pm reading was at almost 5000 feet, but the later reading was close to the surface (I think around 500 or 600 feet). So I believe that supports a conclusion that there is now a westward component at the surface, and likely a new LLC. However, I think they'll probably confirm that with another reading before making that conclusion.
Anyone smarter or more experienced re: tropical weather than I am (those 2 categories basically include everyone most of you get in under the "smarter" prong), please tell me if I'm misinterpreting the significance of that data.
