Based on the very latest HD recon data, pressure is down to around 940 mb with flight-level winds (136 gusting to 147 kts) supporting borderline cat 5 intensity. The onboard SFMR actually indicates even stronger winds at the surface, but I'm not sure what NHC will make of that data. There should be a vortex message coming shortly.
Edit: Still no vortex message yet, but a dropsonde in the eye recorded 936 mb.
