2012 Atlantic Hurricane Season Birdseye Discussion #141A (Special Update)

By: NCHurricane2009 , 8:50 PM GMT on October 24, 2012

...WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 24 2012...4:49 PM EDT...
Hurricane Sandy at high risk of rapid intensification before reaching eastern Cuba late tonight. All preparations in eastern Cuba should have been completed by this point as weather conditions will go downhill from this point forward.

Just before landfall in eastern Jamaica earlier today...Sandy intensified into a category 1 hurricane of 80 mph maximum sustained winds. Despite the landfall...visbile satellite imagery reveals a very impressive core and eye structure remaining intact. And with conditions remaining very favorable for intensification...their is a chance for rapid intensification into a category 2 (100 to 110 mph max sustained winds)...possibly even a category 3 (115 to 125 mph max sustained winds)...before the eye reaches eastern Cuba late this evening.

Return to full discussion #141 for an assessment on the rest of the Atlnatic tropics.
