Hurricane Adrian

Adrian is a major hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 140mph (946mb). A powerful Category-4 hurricane (20-25 nmi diameter eye). The NHC even said Hurricane Adrian had stabilized as an "Annular" hurricane on microwave satellite imagery. While probably near its peak intensity, it's amazing & beautiful to watch. Expect rapid weakening to start occurring by 24 hours as Adrian will encounter SW/W shear, colder waters, and more mid-level dry air. Here are some recent satellite images from tonight. Enjoy!
