I have to wonder if this is going to be very Lee like. The HWRF and HMON are predicting hurricanes and the CMC says at least a good TS. This is assuming it doesn't start falling apart. It has a good rotation to it.

HMON going nuts to a major hurricane again, while the HWRF has a cat 1. Either way, if at least the HWRF is right, the streak continues. This one looks like it is going to be out there awhile.

Ophelia making a big run at becoming a major... ADT numbers, even w/ cloud top temp biases due to lower tropopause in the subtropical Atlantic, suggest Ophelia is ~110 KT atm, yet the NHC says 85 KT?! Lol...
