Even slightly inland (over swampy area anyway) Irene seems to be holding where it is, recon actually found pressure of 947 mb (lower than earlier). So Irene is a very non-typical storm. I'm sure it will be analyzed a lot over the next few months.
It moved nearly due north after landfall, but now appears to be moving more north northeast. Strangely also, the east side has dried out and most of the convection has swung over to the west side (At landfall it most mostly north and east), which is not good for points north. Rain bands already extend into New York, while the center still remains in the sounds of North Carolina.
