Don has kept me busy over the last few hours. We had two recon planes in and out of Don’s center with plenty of information. I’ll talk about this in a couple of hours, but first here is how the NHC interpreted the data for the hurricane hunters:
- Location: 24.7°N 92.5°W
- Max sustained: 50 mph (up from 45)
- Moving: WNW at 14 mph
- Min pressure: 998 mb (recon found 996)
- There has been a west wobble during the last few hours, but WNW to NW motion is expected to return. The NHC has brought the entire forecast track southward due to this wobble.
- Tropical Storm Warnings have been expanded south to the Rio Grande.
