HURRICANE DORIAN COVERAGE
*****DOWNGRADED: CATEGORY 4*****
*****HISTORIC HURRICANE DORIAN*****
WAS 185 to 225 MPH WINDS Now down to 145 MPH
Is this more FAKE WEATHER NEWS?
Each time there's a HURRICANE it is usually winds being reported aloft with the dropsonde and onboard computer equipment with hurricane hunter aircraft. It is not happening at the surface. Until we can see an actually anemometer at the surface that registers 185 to 225MPH winds I don't believe these are credible surface wind reports. Even the downgrade to 145 MPH are winds that are slightly elevated off the surface.
AccuWeather is reporting on this but how accurate is AccuWeather? I haven't seen an actual surface report and cannot find a METAR on this at all at the moment:
