Wilma now a CAT 5, 175 mph winds. Sets new low pressure records.
I have read that this ties 2005 with a previous year for the most named tropical storms.

Wilma is heading for the Mexico-Cuban straights, where all computer models have it turning to Florida.

Surface pressure has been confired at 882, which makes it the record holder for Atlantic basin hurricanes.

Wilma has also set a record for most rapid intensification of an Atlantic hurricane.

Wilma is expected to weaken to a 3 or 2 before it hits Florida.

2. By the time it gets us on the Southeast coast...
it should weaken to a manageable Cat-1 or even a tropical storm. Time to put away the plywood, bust out the rum, and organize the hurricane party!
Ah, sweet relief!

6. That blew me away (figuratively) when I heard it this AM.
Yesterday it was still Cat 1, and building. This AM, Cat 5!

If this keeps up, we may have to reconfigure that catagory scales.

And the season doesn't end until Nov 30?
