Latest updated reported wind gusts from Michael. NHC/NWS/MESONET None from the Mexico City region where the worst hit. Live event videos from that region would suggest Charley/Harvey type similarities, 130s.

I'm late to the game here, but correct me if I'm wrong, are you making a case of NHC misrepresentation of max winds to the public when in reality its lower observed values on land typically in landfalling 'canes? That perhaps it should be adjusted for land friction, for example?

No. Here I am posting the data. Nothing more. As per that discussion, we know of the pitfalls of "over water" versus "land interaction" As well as pitfalls of winds aloft estimated at the surface, and, using maximum value found, rather than perhaps a more even spread.

I wonder why they don't show on reports yet. Been scanning NWS/NHC statements too. Plus, thinking the storm chaser videos at least look similar to Harvey/Rockport, and those were 130s gusts. Plus the mesovorts. If they know & can I'm sure we'll get confirm via NWS/NHC.

you do realize that the weather stations were no longer reporting data after the 130mph+ winds right? and that wasnt even mexico beach... but again, the stations failed... which is what typically happens when you start gusting close to 150mph

We have 1. Special and strategic deployed. No power drop out either as the station is battery powered
