Agree. Can't call anything yet.
I also disagree somewhat with the upgrade to CAT 4 now. They state winds are "near" 130 mph. They either are or they aren't over 130 mph.
We have seen liberties like this being taken before and I don't agree with it. That said, most recent recon does show 131 mph SL (but that is not what the NHC update was based on).
Still they should be accurate but that's probably nit picking these days.
