Re: Hurricane Ernesto - Florida on Notice


Looking at the 85GHz pass, it looks like the central convection has wrapped 75% of the way around the core ... It seems to me that the storm is undergoing the normal reorganization required for the shift from an un-banned TS to a banded hurricane, pushing covenction away from the vortex and wrapping that convection around the core.

I was just looking at the same thing -- the SSMI data suggests that Ernesto is on the verge of becoming a real hurricane. (I believe the 997mb pressure was identical to the previous recon yesterday evening).
