Arlene continues to strengthen, Hurricane Warnings issued - 10:00 pm CDT

NHC has issued Hurricane Warnings for parts of the Gulf Coast from Pascagoula, Mississippi to Destin, Florida. Winds are now sustained at 60 kts, gusting to 75 kts and central pressure is down to 989 mb. At this time, the upgrade of Arlene to a hurricane seems imminent. However, in the latest few shots, Arlene is looking a lot more ragged. We may be seeing the influence of land and drier air already.

UPDATE: A new circulation center seems to be forming to the northeast of the old center. If there is another convection flare, things could get interesting again.

UPDATE: I think I am going to wait and see what happens here. It seems like every time we see a convection flare, the storm reorganizes itself slightly and strengthens a bit. Remember, in a tropical system, the true judge of strength in the central pressure (which has been dropping).
