gaston redesignated

for those of y'all who thought gaston had the structure of a minimal hurricane, nhc's post-analysis report is out and it agrees. the late recon was cancelled, but information from wilmington and charleston radars indicates that winds were at hurricane strength as the storm made landfall. also interesting is the best track data, which has the minimum pressure adjusted down a few mb from the operational numbers given back on august 29th. also, hermine's post-analysis came out a few days ago, and included a track as a depression two days prior to it's operational track.
so, that makes nine hurricanes on the year. four tropical and one subtropical storm. and a depression (that had t.s. level D-numbers a few days before its brief operational classification). six of the hurricanes and two of the tropical storms hit the united states.. a historic season to say the least.
