    Is this what I've seen referred to as a pinhole eye? What does that mean for a system?

    This is a very quickly developing storm from nothing to cat 3 in under 24 hours, probably a cat 4 already, if so how much further will it develope?

    Sorry couldn't post the image, the link is dynamic. I'll search for one that can be posted.

    Edit yep here is one that works.

    Could somebody tell me what the sustained windspeeds are please as i can only find the maximum gusts????????

    Advisory 30 is not out yet.

    SITUATION

    At 0600UTC Severe Tropical Cyclone Glenda located within 20 nautical miles of

    Latitude sixteen decimal zero degrees South [16.0S]

    Longitude one hundred and twenty one decimal one degrees East [121.1E]

    Recent movement : West southwest at 6 knots.

    Maximum winds : 100 knots.

    Central pressure : 925hPa.

    100 knots converts to 115mph, by 06:00 tommorow, Tropical Cyclone Glenda is expected to have sustained winds of 138mph, i am not sure which scale the Australians use because by the Saffir-Simpson scale, Tropical Cyclone Glenda should currently be a category 3, increasing to category 4 tommorow.

    Is this what I've seen referred to as a pinhole eye? What does that mean for a system?

    I remember Rita had a pinhole eye, which as far as I can tell makes it very dangerous as it can lead to rapid drops in central pressure.

    For clarification somebody like Kold Weather or Mondy may be able to help?

    Yes it does look like a pinhole eye to me, very small indeed though there have been smaller but I'll get to that later.

    They are usually a sign of rapid strengthening with a tight pressure gradiant causing very high winds indeed.

    Usually though even the powerful systems can't hang onto the pinhole eye for more then 12-18hrs before undertaking a eyewall replacement, and it'll be this that will weaken Glenda I suspect tommrow IF it follows the norm.

    Anyway the smallest eye ever recorded must surely fall to one of the most powerful hurricanes ever:

    So it's currently 115kts gusting to 140kts (from JTWC) - 115kts is about 210 (115*1.85) which makes it a category 5. the BOM update will reflect this I suspect.

    The BoM will not be copying the JTWC. The BoM and JTWC use different wind measuring periods anyway. ;)
