Ha ha ha! I got in a little trouble after we shot that episode. The producers were not happy with me. 😃

My chase report on the incredible is done! Headline: *incredible* pressure gradients in the inner eyewall, up to 12.4 mb/n mi! That's way beyond what I've measured in past legendary 'canes (PATRICIA, MICHAEL MARIA, etc.). Check it out:

Yeah, agreed. If you wouldn't mind please read section of my report on the air-pressure data & let me know what you think of my methodology for calculating gradients. It's admittedly coarse, but I do it for every intense storm, & results generally correlate well with intensity.

Hey, thanks for watching! 🙂 I'm strictly a tropical dude-- I only chase hurricanes/typhoons, which are unique from other kinds of low-pressure systems because the winds are more violent and concentrated over a relatively small area around the center.

Thanks, Rob! We're working on getting Series 2 setup. Things move slowly in the world of TV. :)

It flattens out in the eye.

Thank you-- glad you liked it! 910 mb sounds right to me. Keep in mind, best track is only to the nearest 10th of a degree, so those center positions are pretty coarse.

Oh, for sure, it would have been an incredible double episode.

Super Typhoon HAIYAN was technically slightly stronger-- however, I penetrated this eyewall more completely, so I saw stronger winds in DORIAN.

Yeah, it's because Series 1 is completed and we haven't setup Series 2 yet. Hopefully soon!

Yep, that's another possible factor-- called "parallax displacement."

2) IR imagery can be misleading, as IR doesn't always line up with what's happening at the surface. Example: IR images of MICHAEL suggested all of Panama City was squarely in the eye when actually none of the city got in the eye.

Thanks so much, man-- really appreciate that. I think discrepancy is a combo of 2 things: 1) NHC center positions are pretty coarse-- only to nearest 10th of a degree. (If you round my position during storm to nearest 10th of a degree, it's same as center's 2 pm position.)
