Re: Hurricane Ernesto - Florida on Notice

Thanks for the info -- from what I've seen, the max wind early this morning was 69kt, but aloft, which extrapolated to the surface would be a little closer to 60kt. I think I'm just splitting hairs here. My point is that sometimes you don't have air recon avaiilable, but you've got plenty of satellite and radar evidence to substantiate intensity changes (i.e. depression vs TS or TS vs hurricane).
