2am update matthew down to a 120mph cat 3 per NHC. Good news for the east coast. I'm not an expert by any means, but as a twenty year hobbyist it looks like an eyewall replacement cycle has been occurring since Freeport. The inner eyewall is now barely visible on radar with the outer eyewall taking its place. This may have expanded the wind field somewhat but it seems to have reduced, at least temporarily, the intensity.
-------------------- Survived Charley at Cat 4 under a staircase. Won't do that again. I watch SW Florida and Abaco primarily.
