Re: Jeanne Landfalls Near Stuart, FL

Okay folks. For those of you that don't have cable tv. ShanaTX just put up about 2 dozen links for info.

If you watch the Weather Channel loop, with the grid overlay, you can see a slight move toward the North.
I'm thinking the 120mph may have come from a mesovortex located just south of the center at landfall. But I can't find data to support that yet.
The eye did manage to contract prior to landfall, and may be the reason the northward move is apparent. The eye contraction could also increase the windspeed temporarily.
Recon had reported an extrapolated pressure of 947mb, but the report was quiclky corrected and the pressure removed from the 0426Z report.
