Hurricane Wilma Discussion Number 16
Nws Tpc/national Hurricane Center Miami Fl
5 Am Edt Wed Oct 19 2005

In Addition To The Spectacular Cloud Pattern Observed On Satellite
...an Air Force Reconnaissance Plane Measured 168 Knots At 700 Mb
And Estimated A Minimum Pressure Of 884 Mb Extrapolated From 700mb.
Unofficially...the Meteorologist On Board The Plane Relied An
Extrapolated 881 Mb Pressure And Measured 884 Mb With A Dropsonde.
This Is All In Association With A Very Small Eye That Has Been
Oscillating Between 2 And 4 N Mi During Eye Penetrations. This Is
Probably The Lowest Minimum Pressure Ever Observed In The Atlantic
Basin And Is Followed By The 888 Mb Minimum Pressure Associated
With Hurricane Gilbert In 1988. However...one Must Be Very Careful
Before It Is Declared A Record Minimum Pressure Until A Full And
Detailed Calibration Of The Instruments And Calculations Is
Performed. So Please Do Not Jump Into Conclusions Yet...be Patient.

Wilma Is A Catastrophic Category Five Hurricane That Is Moving Over
Very Warm Waters...typical Of The Northwestern Caribbean Sea...and
Within An Environment Of Light Shear. However...despite The
Favorable Large Scale Environment...wilma Is Near Its Maximum
Potential Intensity And Further Strengthening Is Not Anticipated.
Most Likely...the Small Eye Will Collapse Followed By Slight
Weakening Or Some Fluctuations In Intensity. Eyewall Replacement
Cycles Will Likely Control The Intensity For The Next 2 To 3 Days
While The Hurricane Is Over The Northwestern Caribbean Sea.
Thereafter...once Wilma Reaches The Southeastern Gulf Of Mexico And
Encounters The Westerlies And High Shear...weakening Should Begin.

The Hurricane Is Moving Toward The West-northwest Or 295 Degrees At
7 Knots. It Seems That Data From The High Altitude Noaa Jet
Ingested By Models Caused The Track Guidance Envelope To Shift
Slightly Westward For The 2 To 3 Day Period. However...no Change In
Track Is Indicated Over The Gulf Of Mexico And Guidance Continues
To Turn Wilma Sharply To The Northeast Over Florida. Based On The
Latest Guidance...the Official Track Forecast Has Been Shifted
Slightly Westward But Is Kept On The Eastern Side Of The Envelope.
This In Case The Track Guidance Shifts Back To The East In The Next
Run.

In Summary...the Official Forecast Brings The Core Of This
Catastrophic Hurricane Northward Through The Yucatan Channel And
Then Sharply Turns A Weaker Hurricane To The Northeast Toward
Florida With An Increase In Forward Speed. No Change In Warnings
Or Watches Is Required At This Time.

Good idea David.
BTW.....thanks for your help in NYC, much appreciated.
(Wish I was there now instead of "preparing" once again.)
Are you coming to KW?

Checked the National Data Buoy Center. There's one buoy that's a little north east of the storm and it is reporting 18'-20' seas. Wind is nowhere near huricane strength.
