Hurricane Emily rapidly intensifying, should become Cat 3 before landfall
Recent recon and satellite data suggest that Hurricane Emily is undergoing a period of rapid intensification that should last until landfall. I am looking for Emily to be a major hurricane and landfall in northern Mexico. The eye of Emily will come ashore some time overnight. Satellite, recon, and radar data all suggest theat Emily's eye is clearing out and that she intends to mean business once again. NHC experimental products suggest that there is an 85% chance of sustained tropical force winds in Brownsville, TX. Any further jog to the north could stand to increase that forecast.
