Quote: Felix may be peaking or close to peaking for now... there has been some definite warming of cloud tops in the CDO in the last hour or so. It'll be interesting to see what the next plane finds in there.
As Storm Hunter pointed above, the last plane lingered in the eye for several minutes after taking a beating in the eyewall. I don't know if there was any meteorological reason for that... it may have been a case of the recon crew regrouping in the relative calm of the eye.
What your saying is all valid...but Felix exhibited very steep developmental rates while the cloud tops were warmer than they are righ now, earlier this late afternoon.
Fact of the matter is, I don't think Felix really will get much more intense than we are seeing while he moves along this quickly.. And an ERC may well take place as Clark discussed.
