      One of the most intersting things about hurricanes this year is their incredibley explosive deepening and development that occured during the nighttime hours. Katrina, Rita, and Wilma all did so.

      Wilma was amazing after its deepening cycle. The eye, only 2 miles in diameter, was pinwheeling around a larger vortex that apperently became the current eye of the hurricane for over 24 hours before the (ERC) eyewall replacement cylce commenced. Nearly every dropsound reported 20+ kt winds at splashdown which leads one to believe the actual pressure of the storm could have been lower than the 884mb that was measured.

      All quite interesting!

      For the record, Wilma was Cat 5 at one time, but has backed off a bit.
      Two questions. One, how does all that tie in to the Maunder Minimum.
      Two, how do you figure eyewall replacement cycles into the mix? At
      one point, Wilma had not one, not two, but three concentric eyewalls.
      She seems to have completed the cycle, though, and it starting to
      build strength again.
