Hurricane Felicia's IR presentation tonight reminds me a lot of Hurricane Isabel (2003). Annular hurricanes are awesome

When Felicia was becoming annular, it also had pronounced mesovorticies much like Isabel...in fact, even though, it was nighttime (no visible sat imagery), you can see how as Felicia really begun to ramp up, a strong low level vortices structure completely isolated itself dead center of her and eroded rapidly (it was like watching the conclusion of a microscale ERC..this was about 2 days ago... it was quite a sight to behold

I know its early, but usually don't we see waves off of Cape Verde by this time?
One actually moved off the other day but has since dissipated. We’re about a week to 10 days until the activity over Africa really starts to ramp up which will coincide with the Saharan dust moving on from the tropical Atlantic. I think 2 weeks from now, things will be starting to get busy
