11pmEST 16 August 2017:
Winds 105mph, booking-it is an understatement at 37mph towards the ENE, pressure 967mb.

Storm at or just past peak intensity now and by sunrise will likely be weakening quickly. Storm will be absorbed by a cold front / low in the Atlantic soon and will head in the general direction of Iceland/northern UK/Norway by late this weekend into early next week.

Storm showing some impressive looking outlfows on the northern half(although being elongated now) this evening (read: like the exhaust on a car if its blocked car doesn't perform as well, but with a custom larger exhaust it breathes better and becomes a more efficient machine):





Those are just some of the pics from our newest weather satellite GOES-16 launched in 2016 - still in preliminary testing phase but you know weather people are going to play with their new toys anyways! Becomes GOES-East in November when it will be declared operational. Some of its advanced tech allows for earlier warning lead times in severe weather, hi-rez closeup of storms in near real-time, and even advanced fire detection for forest fires.

Some more of GOES16 on GERT:

Gert became a Post-Tropical Cyclone, loosing it's tropical characteristics and quickly weakened becoming absorbed into a passing system. The combined system will later go on to effect northern UK, Iceland, Norway region.
