some slight impingement can be seen on the western side of the hurricane in the very last few enhanced IR frames, which *could* suggest a possible near-term plateau coming, if that were to continue.




The western edge has been weaker all day. In past storms the NHC seems to error on the side of higher vs lower, so I found this report a bit conservative in nature. Wonder if post analysis will correct this. They are plenty busy with the track which is WAY more important then a slight wind speed bump.

Overall Dorian is trending about an eye's width N of the forecast line but the motion has been spot on. The eye structure is incredible. I imagine this is what Andrews looked like but we didn't have the satellite resolution or high frame rate to see him this way back then.

They eye is so sharp and clear... Weathernerds Satellite images
