Re: Irene Forecast Lounge

From the sat images overnight and this morning it would appear that convection around the core largely diminished and was diplaced well outwards. But watching the sat images evolve this morning I am beginning to think that what we are about to see is the re-emergence of a new and larger well defined eye over the next 3-6 hours. Could the weakening overnight have been part of a cyclical relaxation / regeneration process, a la eyewall replacement, but without the classic concentric structure that precedes eyewall collapse, and now will follow with eye regeneration?
