Quick Irma Update, 3:35pm CDT

Note: This posting has been updated, please scroll up. 

Irma is on its way to Florida.

After losing a great deal of strength, Irma is now restrengthening as shown by:
  • Lightning near the eye which is becoming more circular
  • Rapidly dropping barometric pressure in the eye now down to 935mb 
  • More distinct eye in visible satellite data
  • Cooling cloud tops in infrared satellite data
Here is the storm at 4:33pm EDT. Miami and Key West are circled. 

So, GET OUT of the storm surge forecast areas and the area where evacuations have been ordered. The Turn has been made and Irma is on its way to Florida.
