Recon [Re: Beaumont, TX]
      #80766 - Sun Jul 20 2008 04:34 PM

From the Google maps that have been posted. It appears that Recon is flying an "X Pattern" as opposed to the usual " Delta Pattern of zig zagging.

The NHC has fixed the Center of Tropical Storm Dolly as per the Google Map that Hugh posted on Page 2.
The location where they are able to " close off a Low pressure circulation".
In other words. They fly 4 different compass heading and have four different wind directions on those particular headings.
