Re: Area of Concern - Hurricane Igor

ED's report appears to be the Max Sustained wind at Hamilton, Bermuda. As the winds dropped off after that report and the pressure began to rise.

Midnight (4) Sep 20 78 (26) 77 (25) 28.56 (0967) S 59 light rain; blowing spray
11 PM (3) Sep 19 78 (26) 77 (25) 28.47 (0964) S 66 light rain; blowing spray
10 PM (2) Sep 19 78 (26) 77 (25) 28.50 (0965) SSE 68 light rain; blowing spray
9 PM (1) Sep 19 77 (25) 75 (24) 28.64 (0970) SE 52 light rain; blowing spray


Actual METARs from Hamilton. I don't know what the WMO abbreviation "BLPY" is for. I'll have to look that one up. "Spray shall be coded only as BLPY"
I guess that breaks down to BLowing sPraY-BLPY.
