New map with Lee still a 115 mph Cat 3, but with the pressure down to 946 mb! Interesting quotes...

... here from the NHC:

-The big change in the aircraft data was the sizable expansion of the whole wind field in the eastern semicircle of the hurricane, which was also shown by a late-arriving SAR pass this morning. - After day 3, there is an increase in guidance spread as the hurricane interacts with an approaching frontal zone, which could cause a small leftward bend in the track. However, recent guidance has tightened somewhat, and the official forecast follows a middle-ground solution similar to the GEFS/ECMWF ensemble means, on the fast side of the consensus. - Note: The 34- and 50-kt wind speed probabilities beyond 36 hours in the text product and graphics are likely underestimating the risk of those winds occurring. This is because the forecast wind field of Lee is considerably larger than average compared to the wind field used to derive the wind speed probability product.
