A weakening would be great but not very likely ~ The warmest waters of the gulf are between Katrina and NO....Prayers!

But the ocean temp is almost 90 degrees, that's just fuel for the fire.
Winds won't decrease until the central pressure stops dropping (the millibar thing you hear about), and it is approaching record low levels with
landfall just over 12 hours from now. Plus the northeast quadrant (with the highest winds) appears to be heading right at the mouth of the MIss River and NO. that's where you'll find the wind gusts around 200 mph unless this thing weakens some.

This is going to definitely be a sad event in American History.

The eye wall regenerated over night. Another regeneration would be nice right now but at 175MPH sustained winds, dropping to 160 wouldn't make much of a difference in my opinion. I'm hopping and praying for the best!

Yeah, Chez posted a link yesterday on Basso's board. Wonder how long they'll be on the air?

Let's hope that it decides to cycle as the storm nears the coast ~ That way, regeneration of the eye wall may not occur. [-o<

Here's the link to Chez John's post: http://www.rbjb.com/rbjb/rbjbboard/messages/435580.html

That makes it the 2nd strongest storm in recorded history (Atlantic Basin) if it comes ashore with that pressure.
