Sat image this morning looks like Irene is now getting caught in the SW winds aloft flow along the coast with movement now appearing NNE, and along with that is experiencing some shear along that direction in the upper levels. The eye has again nearly disappeared, the outflow is extended to the NE, and where earlier appearances showing Irene was regaining outflow in the S and SW portions now appear to be compressed. Convection is coming and going, and is currently strongest on the north side and weak in the west to south portions, That agrees with Doppler imagery from Jacksonville, Charleston and Wilmington. It almost looks that Irene's cyclonic organization is becoming a bit twisted and tilted, like a big slanted helix.
