The 11amEST Wednesday advisory kept winds at 70mph, but recon just measured winds around 86mph at flight level (will always be a tad higher then ground level), so likely will be upgraded to hurricane at or BEFORE the 2pmEST advisory...maybe within the next hour even.

Two Hurricane Hunter aircraft and a Global Hawk drone all flying thru the storm to keep close tabs on it currently so readings are reliable.

11pmEST 9 August 2017: Winds 85mph, moving West 13mph, pressure slightly up to 985mb but recent satellite shows large burst of storms near center so could still get a little stronger. Either way those storms will help the wind reach the ground level more.

Landfall in Mexico in a couple hours. Night storms are not fun.

iCyclone is on the ground chasing the storm center, follow him via social media: Homepage | iCyclone.com



Life threatening impacts possible:
From NHC:
"HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
RAINFALL: Rainfall totals of 4 to 8 inches with isolated maximum
amounts of 15 inches are possible across the Mexican states of
Tabasco, northern Veracruz, northern Puebla, Tlaxacala, Hidalgo,
Queretar and eastern San Luis Potosi in eastern Mexico. These rains
will be capable of producing life-threatening flash floods and
mudslides.

WIND: Hurricane conditions are expected to reach the coast within
the Hurricane Warning area in the next few hours. Preparations to
protect life and property should be rushed to completion.

Tropical storm conditions are expected across portions of the
Tropical Storm Warning area along the southern shore of the Bay of
Campeche through tonight and early Thursday. Hurricane conditions
are possible within the Hurricane Watch area in the next several
hours. Tropical storm conditions are expected within the Tropical
Storm Warning area in eastern Mexico in the next several hours.

STORM SURGE: A dangerous storm surge will raise water levels by
as much as 4 to 6 feet above normal tide levels along the
immediate coast near and to the north of where the center makes
landfall in the Hurricane Warning area. Near the coast, the
surge will be accompanied by large and destructive waves."
