DiscussionEdit

Ophelia nearly degenerated into an open wave last night however convection redeveloped over the LLC and the hurricane hunters have found 50kts surface winds. Ophelia is under a moderate amount of shear which is forecast to increase by the time she reaches the Caribbean, thus halting any intensification and slightly weakening Ophelia. Currently she is well stacked for her strength however dry air is being blown into the core because of the shear, this will be less of an issue when the shear lessens later.
